Inspired by the messages of goodwill carried on Voyager’s Golden Record, you’re invited to send via social media a short, uplifting #MessageToVoyager and all that lies beyond it. With input from the Voyager team and a public vote, one of these messages will be selected for NASA to beam into interstellar space on Sept. 5, 2017—the 40th anniversary of Voyager 1’s launch.

What (and how) can I submit a #MessageToVoyager?

What’s noteworthy about the Voyager mission?

Voyager is the longest continuously operating space mission ever
