IT left Earth 33 years ago, now it's claimed the Voyager 2 spacecraft may have been hijacked by aliens after sending back data messages NASA scientists can't decode.
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!
The best scientific minds have so far not been able to decipher the strange information is it a secret message?
Alien expert Hartwig Hausdorf said:"It seems almost as if someone had reprogrammed or hijacked the probe thus perhaps we do not yet know the whole truth" Read more in Bild
Engineers are working to solve the data transmissions from the Voyager 2 spacecraft near the edge of the solar system, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said today.
The spacecraft late last month began sending science data 8.6 billion miles to Earth in a changed format that mission managers could not decode.
Engineers have since instructed Voyager 2 to only transmit data on its own health and status while they work on the problem.
Launched in 1977, Voyager 2 and its twin, Voyager 1, explored the giant planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and kept on going. Nearly 33 years later, they are the most distant human-made objects.
Voyager 1 is 10.5 billion miles from Earth and in about five years is expected to pass through the heliosphere, a bubble the sun creates around the solar system, and enter interstellar space.
Voyager 2 will follow after that.
It’s called VeeJer now.
Maybe it was “Veegah”?
Data corruption? Don’t ruin the fun! It’s aliens dammit!
Beatcha’ by .07 of a sec !
Interesting. I don’t buy data corruption. They know what data corruption looks like.
It’s as incompatible a format now as betamax, laserdisc, 8-track, and analog tv...
Well, if they show up looking for whales...we’ll be ok...mostly.
The Saturnaliens re-programed it.
Time moves slower for them due to their increased gravity.
The gravity also makes them unable to reach orbit with all but the smallest items.
Space is big.
"Hi, I'm your VeeJer today!"
I believe we have a consensus!! hehe
He was an aide to Democrats in Congress. Inhuman.
My brother still has an operational 8 track with a few Beach Boys tapes and a Simon and Garfunkle
