Then for our main presentation we will welcome Austin Smith a teacher at NMHS and the Golden Record.  NMHS Planetarium recently added a copy of the record, and in the process found a 20 year old recording of the record.  Expect to hear about the wide range of sounds sent out of the solar system to introduce ourselves.
