My Face is in Space

When NASA launched Voyager in 1977 on board was a gold record.   The record held information about our history and our achievements, our location and our DNA.  It also included photos – lots of them.  One of them was a photo of Larry, a young American teenager whose life was changed irrevocably by the inclusion of his image on board Voyager.

Yet, to paraphrase Bentham, stretching up to touch the stars, young Larry forgets the flowers at his feet.

My Face is in Space was created by London based animator, writer and director Tom Jobbins
