Rick Weiss laments NASA's pulling the plug on the Voyager program in yesterday's Washington Post Outlook section. He is right that our curiousity has waned and even makes a clever reference to Star Trek: The Motion Picture. But he makes no reference whatsoever to the far more interesting Golden Record, let alone its pivotal role in Starman.
Galley Slave JVL disagrees profoundly with the importance of the Voyagers, saying a real space probe would be black and have squid-like legs.
