Who can spot the mistake? an error of nomenclature. It jumped right out at me.

Certainly - Voyager should obviously be V’ger! Silly carbon based life forms.

I double checked. Always post first then check later, that’s my motto. Well, I survived this time. The error is as I perceived it.

I just know some race is going to find Voyager one day. And decipher the message then the first thought that's going to jump through their minds is, snack.

Mercury’s orbit is too small to scale on to the drawing.

I don’t think NEAR Shoemaker touched down on Eris.

I figure space travelers came to Earth, arriving in the early morning, pre-dawn, hours. They grabbed the first two Earthlings they saw, a cop and an ER doc, to examine and determine what kind of place Earth was. After looking into their brains and seeing nothing but crime and sickness and injury they erased the Earthling's memory of the event and quietly slipped back into interstellar space, figuring this was one planet they could do without.

That's it. It was Eros. Easy to confuse Love with Discord, perhaps. The number is wrong too.

I found this mission to be particularly fascinating, and I followed it closely.

Bottom left. Billions of miles should be changed to astronomical units.

BNNNNNKKK! The earth is placed at just under 0.1 billion miles, consistent with 93 million miles. Also, Uranus is placed at about 1.75 billion miles, which is correct.
