Now Available: Same Record We Shipped to Extraterrestrials


Somewhere out in the great abyss of space, an alien may be jamming to Chuck Berry this very moment. 

Now, earthlings can buy the very same record. The Washington Post reports that startup Ozma Records is poised to begin shipping copies of the famed Golden Record that NASA sent into space aboard the two Voyager spacecrafts in 1977. 

The original records, made of copper and coated in gold to withstand the rigors of space, contain the music of Berry, Beethoven, and others, along with various greetings and animal sounds from Earth. The company is accepting orders now at $50, and it expects to start shipping in January. A three-LP box set follows in February, notes Mixmag. (Listen to the "Sounds of Earth" portion here.)
