Description

In 1972 and 1973, the NASA Pioneer space mission launched twin spacecraft, Pioneer 10 and 11, with each carrying a 6" x 9" gold-anodized aluminum plaque. The plaque is affixed to the support struts close to the spacecraft's main body. Carl Sagan and Frank Drake played key rolls in designing the plaque and Linda Salzman Sagan, Sagan's wife at the time, was the artist who drew the images engraved on the plaque.

The images on each plaque are intended to explain to any alien form of life who we are and where we come from.

Measuring 7/8" x 1 1/4", this is the perfect item to add to your space and astronomy collection!
