The ‘Cavatina’ in Space.

                          The Cavatina in Space.

In 1977 two spacecraft called Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 were sent into space. They carried with them a gold coated copper record of some of humankind’s music, one of the pieces of music was Ludwig van Beethoven’s Cavatina, from his late String Quartet Opus 130.

I found this intriguing short fiction written by an unknown author on on wattpad. In the far future the Golden Record is found, and they hear the Cavatina for the first time….(Listen while you read and let your imagination roam…)
