Timothy Ferris produced the Voyager phonograph record, an archive of music, voices, and natural sounds of Planet Earth carried aboard the twin Voyager interstellar spacecraft, which were launched from Kennedy Space Center in 1977 and are now leaving the solar system. Regrettably, the record is not at present available to the public. For information about the record and other aspects of the Voyager mission, see http://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/spacecraft/goldenrec.html. The book Murmurs of Earth describes how the Voyager record was created and details its contents.
Rocky Hill Observatory features a custom-made 18" F/4.5 Newtonian reflecting telescope in a carbon fiber tube on a restored 1972-vintage Beyers mount and a Bisque control system. Scenes from the observatory appear in Timothy Ferris's film “Seeing in the Dark”.
