Gran Muro de Coma by La Iglesia Atomica

The Great Coma Wall is a galaxy wall with a maximum dimension of either 500 million or 750 million light years. It is 200 million light years in width and about 16 million light years in thickness. Its nearest point is about 300 million light years from Earth, while its farthest point is 550 million light years away. It consists of three massive galaxy superclusters: Hercules, Coma and Leo.
Voyager 1 is a space probe launched by NASA on September 5, 1977 and, at a distance of 135 astronomical units from the Sun, in June 2016, it is about 17,702 years to reach the Oort Cloud. It is expected to enter into the cloud, the last cosmic structure before the Wall, in about 300 years. At a distance of approximately 21 billion kilometers from the Sun, as of January 2, 2018, it is the farthest spacecraft and man-made object from Earth.
This album is a sonic interpretation of the interstellar journey of the Voyager probe until its arrival at the Great Wall of Coma and presenting itself before it as a Son of the Sun, just as humans call the star of the planetary system where they live.
