The pioneer plaque is a 15 x 23-centimetre gold anodized aluminium plate attached to the antenna of pioneer 10 and pioneer 11, the message it carries was devised by Carl Sagan and Frank Drake with the intended purpose of being recovered in the distant future by an advanced extraterrestrial race, our tote bag is the perfect gift for any astronomy geek!
The top left of the plaque shows the hyperfine transition of neutral hydrogen. Below the expanding lines showcase the position of our sun relative to the 14 pulsars and the centre of the galaxy. Below that is a representation of our solar system along with a binary relative distance indicator, this shows where the plaque was sent from. Above is the iconic illustration of the male & female form above an outline of the pioneer probe showing the human species launched the probe and was a space-faring civilization.
