January Week Three: Today we dedicated the whole hour to the aliens, the search for intelligent life, and the fascinating Voyager Golden Record. To explore the contents of the record, check out the website goldenrecord.org
For original version listening, try listening to the first part of the SPACE episode from Radiolab that talks about the voyager record and Carl Sagan or a radio program about the endeavour on NPR. Reading: Learners can read a biography of the creater of the Voyager Golden Record, astronomer Carl Sagan or another one from over at Many Things.
Writing: So for writing this week, tell me... Do you believe in intelligent life out there? If you were to make a time capsule of life on earth what would you use to represent our species and planet? Why? Best, Kelly
