‘Voyager’ Animated Short Brings The Golden Record Back To A Decaying Earth

Last week the Voyager Golden Record project launched on Kickstarter to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the mission. Given that the record is currently 13 billion miles away from Earth, this is probably the closest any of us will ever get to experiencing this message as it was originally intended. However, this wonderful short film by Loïc Magar and Roman Veiga imagines the Voyager probe returning to a decaying Earth in the far off future, where the message is received not by extraterrestrials, but a little girl that finds its message just as alien.

The short, while a little somber, is well worth a watch. Check it out below.
