2017 saw the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Voyager Golden Record, a phonograph record included aboard the two Voyager spacecraft. The records contain sounds and images portraying the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended as a message for intelligent extraterrestrial life forms.
We Are Here is about the time capsule that was returned to Earth by an alien civilisation in response to these original Voyager records. It is a ‘message in a bottle’ from an extraterrestrial life form. Who sent it? And why?
