Valya Balkanska – A Space Woman at 78!
Whose unearthly voice roars in the cosmos!
Her most famous recording – a solo performance of the song “Delivered Heidutin” – was made in the late 1960s by American researcher of Bulgarian folklore Martin Koening and was released on a record in the USA.
A few years l
ater, a copy of the plate falls by accident among the purchased recordings in preparation for the Golden Plate, a message from Earth that would fly outside the solar system aboard two identical NASA Voyager spacecraft.
The song was included in the final 90-minute selection of Carl Sagan musicals and first flew Voyager 2, which was launched on August 20, 1977, and two weeks later on September 5, 1977 – and Voyager 1. On August 25, 2012, Voyager 1 becomes the first human-made object to leave the Heliosphere and enter the Interstellar environment
