If you’re looking for a perfect gift for your favorite geek, look no further. Now you can give them a copy of the Voyager Golden Record. Up until a year ago, you couldn’t buy a copy, but in 2016 Ozma Records ran a brilliant Kickstarter campaign to issue a limited vinyl edition.
The campaign was so successful, they went on to work with Light in the Attic to release a two-disc CD set which you can pre-order for December 15th. Better yet, there will be a vinyl edition available in the first quarter of 2018.
Here’s a one minute Newsy video and a Washington Post article about the upcoming releases.
