Scars: how our wounds make us who we are


Scars are not just skin-deep: emotional and psychological histories lie beneath the healed wounds. In this documentary, we meet five different people whose scars forever changed how they see the world, and how the world sees them. Their scars are the result of war, self-harm, birth defects, cancer and domestic violence, and the subject of a collection of stories both extraordinary and everyday. These scars bear witness to our lived experience of love, loss, strength and overcoming the odds

The Voyager Golden Record shot into space in 1977 with a message from humanity to the cosmos - and decades later, it stands as a reminder that we are all connected.
The United Nations displays a replica of the Golden Record at its Headquarters, and shares a deep connection to the process of creating it. A NASA committee asked the UN to provide materials to include on the playlist, and the first words on the Record itself are those of the then-UN Secretary-General expressing hope for peace and friendship with whoever discovers and plays it.
Bill Nye "The Science Guy," CEO of the Planetary Society, walks viewers through how to decipher the Golden Record, its significance today, and how reverence for the universe can inspire action for our planet.
This aligns with the ongoing work of the United Nations to promote international cooperation in the peaceful use and exploration of space.
The Director of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, Simonetta Di Pippo, explains the significance of the Golden Record in our world now. "The undertaking of the Voyager project reminds us of who we are, where we came from, and that we should treat each other with care."
