Overview of building the exhibition:

* We will shout this message to all Terrestrials thru a banner, 12 meter wide, on the outside of our exhibition space as the future is terrestrial. ‘The story behind the creation of this “interstellar message” is chronicled in the book, “Murmurs of Earth”, by Carl Sagan, et al. Unfortunately, not much information is given about the individual speakers. Many of the speakers were from Cornell University and the surrounding communities. They were given no instructions on what to say other than that it was to be a greeting to possible extraterrestrials and that it must be brief’ (https://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/golden-record/whats-on-the-record/greetings/).
