THE FIRST SONG I LEARNED TO PLAY ON THE PIANO
In the fall of 1977 the U.S. government sent two ships, Voyager 1 & 2, into space where they’re eventually destined to reach the edge of our galaxy. In the hope that someone, somewhere would intercept these craft, a variety of messages were placed on board that would be capable of communicating the existence of an intelligent creature living on a planet called earth. Among these was included a short prelude by Johann Sebastian Bach as performed by Glenn Gould.
Voyagers 1 & 2 left our solar system in 1987 and 1989.
