The 116 images of humanity that where launched through space to meet the aliens

The Voyager 1 probe was launched by NASA in 1977 with the desire to explore the planets outside the solar system. But this probe has also been designed to carry a message sent to the aliens: the Voyager Golden Record. The images sent contain text, photographs, music and sounds, describing the planet Earth and the human species. 116 images were selected by a committee chaired by astronomer Carl Sagan, and were then stored on a gold disk designed to go through space and time.

I propose you to rediscover these 116 images selected 38 years ago to describe humanity! Yes, there are chances that these already very kitsch and vintage pictures will be the first images from us and the Earth that the aliens will discover. In 2012, Voyager 1 became the first human-made object to leave the solar system and sail into interstellar space.
