Your Chance to Speak for Earth in a “Voyager Golden Record 2.0”
JOIN US TO CREATE A SELF-PORTRAIT OF HUMANITY TO SEND TO THE STARS ON NASA’S PLUTO MISSION, NEW HORIZONS.
The New Horizons Message Initiative hopes to persuade NASA to upload a crowd-sourced message to the spacecraft’s memory, following a successful Pluto encounter. The form and content of the message are yet to be determined, but will probably consist of pictures and, possibly, sounds. This is a project to create and implement that message.
To me, the most important part of what we are doing is the Message TO Earth aspect. Literally nothing is more important than raising planetary consciousness, a planetary perspective, given the global problems we will face in this century. We can play a worthwhile part in that.

Please Help with a Donation
Our effort is entirely volunteer, but we do have expenses in coordinating an international campaign. Even a small donation will be appreciated and used to advance this project. It will be far easier to raise funds after we get NASA’s approval. But we need your help NOW to continue this effort effectively. We have some terrific donor rewards
from renowned space artist Jon Lomberg. Thank you!
Donor Reward Sample – $25 Level – “Visions of the Galaxy” Notecard Set
Four notecards of imaginative depictions of the Milky Way Galaxy, ranging from realistic to visionary, including Jon Lomberg’s famous mural for the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. See the donation page
for details on this reward and to view the many other rewards available.
“I am for it (the message). I think it will inspire and engage people to think about SETI and New Horizons in new ways.” ~ Alan Stern, Principal Investigator for New Horizons
