Your Chance to Speak for Earth!

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is currently about 3 billion miles (5 billion kilometers) from Earth, en route to a historic encounter to reconnoiter Pluto and its moons– worlds that will in 2015 become the farthest-ever frontier of human exploration.  Eventually, New Horizons will become the fifth spacecraft to leave the solar system, following Pioneers 10 and 11 and Voyagers 1 and 2 on an endless voyage through interstellar space.  Each of our first four interstellar probes carries a message from the people of Earth to any extraterrestrial who might someday encounter them.  New Horizons carries no such message.…but it’s not too late to add one!

The New Horizons Message Initiative hopes to persuade NASA to upload a 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 proposal is scientifically sound, technically feasible, and socially beneficial. We should do it. Think of it as a self-portrait of Planet Earth by its people in the second decade of the 21st Century.

“A Voyager Golden Record 2.0”

The Message Initiative’s Director is Jon Lomberg, possibly Earth’s most experienced creator of space message artifacts. As Carl Sagan’s long time collaborator, Jon served as Design Director for the creation of the iconic Voyager Golden Records, which contain a stunning array of sights and sounds of our home world. The Voyager spacecraft have left the solar system behind, carrying their message into interstellar space.

New Horizons will reach interstellar space in about 30 years. Let’s make a message for whoever might find New Horizons, from all of us on Earth.

Lomberg proposes creating a kind of “Voyager Record 2.0”, a new self-portrait of humanity. For the New Horizons Message Initiative, Jon has assembled a team of expert advisors to help craft this latest venture in interstellar communication.  Unlike the Pioneer and Voyager messages, which were created by small, select teams, the New Horizons Message Initiative welcomes and invites the participation of all interested parties on our small but special world.  The content of the message will be determined by scientists, artists, writers, and ordinary people who share an interest in this unique and important enterprise.

We are not requesting any specific funds from NASA to manage and design this complex project. Its initial success depends on our persuading NASA to approve this initiative, and then on the support of private individuals and organizations. This is not simply a message from Earth, but even more important, a message to Earth.  The very act of creating the message will bring together people from many places, different walks of life, and different perspectives.  The final product will be something that everyone on this planet can take pride in, and may even serve to help unify our troubled world.

We, the undersigned, enthusiastically endorse the New Horizons Message Initiative, and we urge NASA and all interested people and organizations to join us in supporting it. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join in a chorus of voices that will speak for Earth!
