Huge gallery alert!! These 125 images are what can be found on the Voyager Golden Record which was blasted into space on both Voyager spacecraft in 1977. The purpose of the record is to give any would-be alien civilizations who might find one of the records a well-rounded idea of what us Earthlings are like. In addition to the images below, the record also contains audio of many Earthly sounds.
