Several shipping options are displayed during checkout. Prices start at just $1.00, but note the following:
Regular letter: this is the cheapest option and is available if you're ordering 1 or 2 Metal Earth kits. This is sent using the standard Australia Post letter service which is cheap, but slower than parcels. No tracking is provided.
Priority letter: arrives one day faster than the regular service, but it's still sent as a letter with no tracking.
Other services: both regular and express parcel services are available and in these cases tracking is provided. Our preferred shipper is Fastway as they provide tracking and signature on delivery for an affordable price.
The voyager twin probes were launched in 1977 with the mission to explore the outer planets of our solar system. The primary missions are complete, however Voyager 1 & Voyager 2 are continuing to report discoveries and will do so until around 2025. Although the two Voyagers have captured some remarkable photos of our planets and their moons, the most famous shot was taken when Voyager 1 was commanded to turn around and take a final photo of earth as the probe was leaving our solar system. At 6 billion kilometers, our home appears smaller than a pixel. The image, named Pale Blue Dot, forces us to put our existence into perspective as our planet appears as a tiny speck suspended in a lightbeam. Astronomer Carl Sagan, who was the one who requested the photo be taken, noted "the earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena". JPL · Wikipedia
