If you didn’t grow up as a space nerd, you might not know that the Voyager I and II spacecraft that NASA launched in 1977 are each carrying a golden record with sounds and images designed to function as a sort of time capsule about life on Earth. In honor of the upcoming 40th Anniversary of the mission, you can own a copy of the Voyager Golden Record thanks to a few other space nerds and Ozma Records. Bach. Chuck Berry. Mozart. Beethoven. Whale sounds. Greetings in 55 different languages. All of these items, along with the images and diagrams of the original and a brand new hard cover book are being packaged in a Kickstarter-only box set that absolutely belongs in your record collection. Just to put all this in perspective, even Carl Sagan (who chaired the committee that created the originals decades ago) didn’t receive a copy of this record, but the Carl Sagan Institute will be getting 20% of the net proceeds of this Kickstarter.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
