Entry Description

A special Chinese edition of Murmurs of Earth to honor Carl Sagan on the 20th Anniversary of his death in 2016. This simplified Chinese edition is the re-design of the 1978 english version for Chinese readers. Murmurs of Earth tells the story of the famous Voyager Golden Record, a record that travelled with the space probe launched in 1977 by NASA in an attempt to find extraterrestrial life. The record contained 118 photographs of our planet; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; an evolutionary audio essay on "The Sounds of Earth"; and greetings in almost sixty human languages. Through this book, many Chinese readers for the first time get to know the voyager golden record and Carl Sagan.
