http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyager_Golden_Record Was just reading the story of the voyager golden record. While a cool idea and they seem to have included lots of earth sounds and such, do they think that there are turntables in space? How are the aliens supposed to play it? They should have sent one along, or something. My favorite tidbit was a joke by father Guido Sarducci...the first message from extraterrestrials was being received. Once decoded, the message stated, "Send more Chuck Berry."
