Once upon a time, not all that long ago, some very clever and very scared monkeys on a little planet called Dirt decided to send a post card further than anyone before them. So they got their other clever friends together and sent a message. That message said:
"Hello,
We are here. Maybe we can be friends.
Signed,
Humanity" The lines of the pulsar map sent with the Voyager spacecraft
We're still a lot of scared little monkeys on a rock named Dirt, but we still sent that message and we should be striving to be a people and individuals that can receive a response with open arms.

I've not been in a great place mentally for a while. This morning I was struggling to get ready for another uncertain day when I looked at my tattoo of this map and remembered the reason I got it.
CW re: mh~
The audacity, the ambition, and the hope that went with these probes during the height of the cold War, such uncertain times then too, is a light and a flame that still burns today, and the drive that pushed us beyond our tiny sphere can still be found within us all.
