The following is a listing of pictures electronically placed on the phonograph records which are carried onboard the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft. The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University, et. al. Dr. Sagan and his associates assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind and thunder, birds, whales, and other animals. To this they added musical selections from different cultures and eras, and spoken greetings from Earth-people in fifty-five languages, and printed messages from President Carter and U.N. Secretary General Waldheim. Each record is encased in a protective aluminum jacket, together with a cartridge and a needle. Instructions, in symbolic language, explain the origin of the spacecraft and indicate how the record is to be played. The 115 images are encoded in analog form. The remainder of the record is in audio, designed to be played at 16-2/3 revolutions per minute. It contains the spoken greetings, beginning with Akkadian, which was spoken in Sumer about six thousand years ago, and ending with Wu, a modern Chinese dialect. Following the section on the sounds of Earth, there is an eclectic 90-minute selection of music, including both Eastern and Western classics and a variety of ethnic music. Once the Voyager spacecraft leave the solar system, they will find themselves in empty space. It will be forty thousand years before they make a close approach to any other planetary system.
1 : Golden Wind
The Golden Ridge will really try your patience. With its strong winds that push you around, bouncy clouds, moving blocks, and popping bubbles it will demand your accuracy. Fear not! It is possible and quite rewarding when completed. And when you collect every last secret, victory tastes so much sweeter.
On the screen after talking with the old lady, you can spot the strawberry near the bottom. Use the wind to press you against the wall with the strawberry. Climb up and dash to the column in the middle. Hop to the other side and then jump to the ledge for safety.
There are four strawberry seeds on the screen. You must collect them all without your feet touching the ground to create a strawberry. Whenever you grab one seed, a leftward wind will immediately start blowing. You need to use this wind to navigate the room without touching the floor.
Starting on the right, climb the wall to grab the first seed. Use the wind to leap to the first column and then hop over to the spring on the other side. This spring recharges your stamina and dash. Fighting the wind, jump straight up and dash to grab the wall next to the second seed. Jump off and back down to the spring to recharge with two seeds in tow.
Grab onto the second column and hop over to its left side. Slide down and drop to the third seed, dashing up and to the left once you grab it. The wind will carry you to the third column. Your stamina will start to run low.
On the screen that has three clouds over a large hole with a leftward wind, use the second cloud to jump up and to the left. Dash to make it to the left corner where a secret path can be found. Walk to the left on the screen with the seeds.
Use the rightward wind to wall jump up the right-hand wall without using stamina. When the wind stops jump to the column near the strawberry, using your dash. Hop over the top and grab the strawberry. The wind will kick back up and blow you back to the right side where it is safe to land.
Right at the start of the old trail, use the wind to wall jump up the left wall. At the top is an entry point to a room with a flying strawberry. Use the wind to land on the left wall. Climb up to the height of the strawberry and then dash into it. As you fall, hold grab so that you can grab the right wall and climb to safety.
You can spot this strawberry at the bottom of the screen near the beginning of the Old Trail. Fighting the wind, jump and dash up the the small "L" shaped platform up above. Now jump and dash into the bubble. Using the bubble, go to the left to land on the strawberry. Diagonally dash up to grab the column wall and climb to safety.
This strawberry is easy to spot. It can be found floating beneath four disappearing platforms. Fight the wind by jumping and dashing to reach each platform. On the final one, jump back to nab the fruit and then dash upward to ride the wind back to a previous platform.
Use the closer bubble to launch toward the strawberry. Once you touch it, dash immediately upward to land in the second bubble. From here, exit straight up and ride the wind with one diagonal dash to safely grab the fall and climb to safety.

Geostrophic, cyclostrophic, inertia-circle, gradient, and anomalous gradient winds as functions of radius in a hurricane-like vortex, illustrating the relative magnitudes of the different approximations at the golden radius. Note that the inertia-circle and anomalous winds are anticyclonic, although they are plotted as positive values for comparison. 041b061a72
