Pessimistic Pioneer Plaque

A replica of the Pioneer Plaques, aluminium plates bearing messages to potential interstellar life, that are attached to the space probes Pioneer 10 and 11. Launched in 1972, Pioneer 10 is expected to pass another star system in around 90.000 years. Instead of the nude figures representing humanity, the Pessimistic Pioneer Plaque pictures two skeletons.
2020, Golden aluminium plaque, 23 x 15 cm.
