Reading about the Pioneer Plaque just sparked a memory...I attended a summer program called College for Kids while growing up in San Diego in the early 80s...I took an astronomy class and was quite excited when one of the scientists/engineers who worked on creating the Voyager Golden Record visited to talk about NASA and space exploration...I remember him talking about your dad and showing slides of them together holding one of the golden records. I had forgotten about that until just now...


Hi Nick,

Just wondering if you know where one might obtain a faithful replica of this plaque. I found one vendor on Ebay but just wanted to check with you first to see if there might be an official outlet.

Kind regards,


Juvenal Gordon


We now December 20, 2010, do not forget your father, because I always remember, in the infinity of time, because among the living, guided between the starlight.
