Join us for a special online conversation with Ann Druyan, the celebrated Creative Director of NASA's Golden Record.

From her work in the 1970s as the Creative Director for NASA’s Voyager Interstellar Messaging Project to her current role as writer and producer of the beloved television series Cosmos, Ann Druyan has devoted her life to expanding the horizons of human empathy and communication. In insisting that the thresholds of cosmic exploration must be approached with sincerity, humility, and generosity, she has had a deep influence on Dario Robleto’s work throughout his career.

In this online conversation, Druyan and  Robleto will be joined in conversation by The Heart’s Knowledge catalogue contributor Jennifer Roberts, Professor of the Humanities at Harvard.  Roberts and and Robleto are co-authoring a book  about the interstellar journey of the pulse wave recordings that Druyan included on the Voyager Golden Record.
