VOYAGER - A Message from Earth Into the Unknown
Humanity’s farthest and longest-lived spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2, achieved 40 years of operation and exploration this September. Despite their vast distance, they continue to communicate with NASA daily, still probing the final frontier as they journey into the unknown.

Their story has not only impacted generations of current and future scientists and engineers, but also Earth’s culture, including film, art and music. Each spacecraft carries a Golden Record of Earth sounds, pictures and messages; a document of Earth's inhabitants. Since the spacecraft could last billions of years, these circular time capsules could one day be the only traces of human civilization. They have educated us to the unknown wonders of the universe and truly inspired humanity to continue to explore our solar system and beyond.

Team members estimate they will have to turn off the last science instrument by 2030. However, even after the spacecraft go silent, they’ll continue on their trajectories at more than 30,000 mph, completing an orbit within the Milky Way galaxy every 225 million years, carrying our message to the cosmos.

What have the Voyagers discovered in the last 40 years, and what lies ahead? Join us for this fascinating story of the Voyagers - carrying a message from Earth into the unknown.

LinkLive
Link is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of our place in the universe.

We believe passionately in the power of inspiration and understanding of STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. Since its beginning in 2012, hundreds of award winning LinkLive public events have been enjoyed by sell-out crowds throughout the Midwest. 

LinkLive is an audio/visual spectacle utilizing a variety of guest speakers, and the very latest in theater screen digital imagery, animations, music and multimedia technology. LinkLive events create an engaging and thought-provoking environment as we share the wonders of the universe in ways that inspire, excite, challenge and educate.
