Hope you enjoyed and learned something new! It may not be a stereotypical space quiz, but I find this stuff pretty fascinating :) In case you are interested in learning more, here is a video that mentions it (starting at 13:40, although I recommend the whole video). And if you want to listen to any of the songs, check out this playlist!

Nice quiz, and interesting (obscure if I may put it that way) topic :) I got all the easy/obvious ones, and although I don't quite understand the whole thing, it was surprising to see countries like Benin and Solomon Islands show up.

Thanks! It is an obscure topic, and I only learned about it because of the Vsauce video I posted. I figured it would be nice to share it with the world :)

Some of the countries on here are definitely very interesting. Personally I think they did a pretty good job of making it represent the world. My only complaint is the large amount of German music, which I think could have been replaced with some of the more underrepresented parts of the world.

Anyways, thanks for playing!

Fabulous quiz! I knew about the Voyager's Record but didn't know it is carrying songs as well. I knew about images and some greetings but not songs. Anyway, the SVG is great! I have a feeling you're gonna win the QCC. :)
