The twin spacecraft will fall out of contact with Earth one day. But even then, their work will not be over. They will continue to serve as earthly messengers.

Gold-plated copper disks known as the golden records are attached to each ship. The 12-inch disks carry messages. They are designed to work like a time capsule. The disks contain pictures and music. They also have recordings of greetings from Earth in 55 languages.

The disks were mad when the Voyagers launched. The work like old phonograph records. In 1977, CD’s were a thing of the future. If the golden records are found one day, CD’s too, will likely be a thing of the long-distant past. See more on the Voyager.
