GAY TALESE - 'FRANK SINATRA HAS A COLD'(ESQUIRE, 1966)

Journalist Gay Talese pushed the boundaries of editorial journalism when writing for Esquire in '66. It's still considered one of the greatest literary non-fiction stories of the 20th century. Talese was tasked with writing a profile on Sinatra, who turned down Esquire's requests for years. So he followed Sinatra's entourage for 3 months, gleaning what he could about the man. "I may not get the piece we'd hoped for — the real Frank Sinatra, but perhaps, by not getting it — and by getting rejected constantly and by seeing his flunkies protecting his flanks — we will be getting close to the truth about the man."

'LIVE AT THE MOLDE JAZZ FESTIVAL' (1980)

In '77, the NASA Voyager team tapped famous astronomer Carl Sagan to compose a message for galactic life to receive, telling Earthly human story. Sagan's committee chose a copper phonograph LP as their medium, and over the course of six weeks they produced the "Golden Record": a collection of sounds and images that can outlast all human artifacts on Earth. Explore the orbiting gift that's awaiting a fated space voyager.
