In 1977, NASA launched a pair of probes named Voyager to explore the outer solar system. Aboard each was a gold-plated phonograph record containing images, sounds and music from planet Earth - a time capsule of humanity to last a billion years.

MURMURS OF EARTH tells the incredible true story of the Voyager Golden Records - the people who created them, how their contents were chosen, and what these objects say about us and our place in the cosmos.

Murmurs of Earth

MaxQ Productions—The Rachel Browne Theatre

In this play they tell the story of the creation of the gold-plated record that was put on the Voyager space probes. The record was an attempt to create a way to describe the Earth and its inhabitants to any future beings that might come across the probes as they travel through deep space after exiting our solar system.

Jacques Leger is quite convincing as Carl Sagan, the leader of that project and its forerunner, the plaque that was added to the pioneer probe. In addition to the scientific and bureaucratic trials and tribulations that are featured, there was also the story of the relationships between Sagan, his wife Linda, and the other people on the project. An interesting look at Sagan’s life before he became one of the first celebrity scientists.
