A Stunning Short Video: "Scavenger"

In 1977 NASA launched two golden records into deep space on the Voyager I and II probes. Having left our solar system, they are the most distant human-made objects. The records carry sounds and images of our planet and human brainwaves.

In this Radiolab interview, Ann Druyan explains what those brainwaves contain:

The film begins when a planetary scavenger in an advanced spacesuit comes across the Voyager I drifting in interstellar space. Reading the brainwaves at the end of the record connects him to a planet he’s never known… Earth.

Scavenger is a proof of concept for a feature-length film.
