In 2017, the world celebrates the 40-year anniversary of the Voyager Mission. On August 25, 2012, Voyager 1, entered interstellar space; Voyager 2 is close behind. Hurtling through space at 35,000 mph, the twin Voyagers are rewriting the astronomy books. They are also carrying the Golden Record, a time capsule of images and sounds created by Carl Sagan and a team of writers and artists. Students will look back at where we’ve been, and into the future to where we’re going while getting an intimate look of the writer’s path.
