the golden record images -Famous "Voyager 1" spacecraft was launched by NASA on September 5, 1977. Despite its primary missions (to study the outer Solar System and interstellar medium) the spacecraft had another – to send a message to other life forms in the universe.
"The Pioneer plaques are a pair of gold-anodized aluminium plaques which were placed on board the 1972 Pioneer 10 and 1973 Pioneer 11 spacecraft, featuring a pictorial message, in case either Pioneer 10 or 11 are intercepted by extraterrestrial life."
This image of Saturn and its rings was taken by Pioneer 11. In September 1979 Pioneer 11 tracked its course towards Saturn and caputred this unbelievable photograph. On September 30th, 1995 NASA halted Pioneer 11's daily operations.
