I’m on the road now so I’m blogging this with my iPhone, but read this:
NASA installed a 12-inch disk containing music and greetings in 55 languages in case intelligent extraterrestrial life ever found it.
But now the spacecraft is sending back what sounds like an answer: Signals in an unknown data format!
Here is a very good example of someone jumping to the most ilogical conclusion. Here is a simpler explanation: Voyager is over 30 years old and traveling through an extremely harsh environment so its computers have gone a bit wonkey. It’s stunning it has lasted this long. Also, why would aliens use voyager to send us a message? Surely they must be advanced enough to send us a message with their own equipment?
