My friend Don Bellunduno and I visited the Boston Museum of Science
on September 5, 1998, and he took a photo of the Pioneer 10 Plaque
display they have had there since at least 1974.

Dr. Sagan is featured in audio during a lecture he gave there around
1973 (just press the black button), plus the text he wrote for World
Book Encyclopedia Science Year 1973. The rest shows a large blow
up of the Plaque, plus an actual size reproduction, plus four photos of
the Pioneer 10 probe in the lower right corner.

The MoS Web site has nothing on this display, so I figured I would
make up for it, considering this is our first deliberate message into
the Milky Way galaxy with our first interstellar craft. Obviously it
was something they cared about in the early 1970s. Here it is:
