Have aliens hijacked Voyager 2 spacecraft


www.dailytelegraph.com.au

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 ha

This is crazy!

An unknown format eh?

It could very well be just a glitch and it returning gibberish, but maybe not.


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.


Is this the farthest craft we have?

My coolness radar just went crazy.


It reminds me of the old 1997 movie...ugh, what's it called? Contact, or something like that. About SETI receiving a signal from aliens, a signal that is later translated into a picture - of Hitler.


Interesting, and cool, either way. Nice find, OP.


Edit to add: The movie is called Contact, and stars Jodi Foster and Matthew McConnaughey.

Great thread, S&F! If this is real and it's not just corrupted data being sent, then I am ecstatic! The implications of this are so huge.....when will we have disclosure?

Yeah contact was great, minus Mathew McConaughey, stupid douche bag.

I'm quite intrigued by this finding, trying to do a little more research though.

Here's apparently a news statement from the Voyager 2 people. I found the link via Wikipedia:

I don't know about breaking news, as this was posted back on the 6th in the Space Exploration thread: NASA tries to unscramble Voyager 2 signals

My reply in that thread was:

in a changed format that mission managers could not decode


But everything is fine they say. "Everything is fine...nothing to see etc. etc....."

Funny how a pre-programmed piece of equipment is all of a sudden returning un-decodable data.

Answer: Something the greys DEFINITELY need.


On the serious side; if it IS an alien signal, what is the likelihood of NASA being up-front with it?

Flag & Star to you, great find! Thank you! I guess the devise is accomplishing it's mission beyond all expectation?

Ohh, my bad.

The article I referenced was from today, hence breaking news.

I think it's just getting to be more popular of a story. Some MSM are just slower than others lol.

Wow.. I am sure they will spin it into a (semi) plausible explanation. I can imagine that if/when it happens, it could happen like this. That leaves the questions if it does happen: Why now? Why the Voyager?

It is possible that the transmissions have been scrambled by one of the interstellar shock waves that buffet the satellite far into deep space.

Very nice......... i wish we can know what it is

and also, isnt the data we sent had our DNA mapping,how human beings looks,etc etc,? if so, There was a crop circle that its said that contains the aliens DNA structure along with a picture of them.

Was there an official Nasa statement. I would like to hear the cover up first hand lol!!

It would make a cool plot for a movie. I hope its more than a bug.

In an interview Monday, Voyager project scientist Ed Stone said the most likely cause of the hiccup is a bit flip, where parts of a stream of data are improperly formatted. There are "probably one or two bits which have been flipped from a 0 to 1 or 1 to 0, and that affects only the science mode data," Stone told Spaceflight Now. Officials expect to receive more data on Thursday or Friday indicating whether the issue is a simple bit flip or a more serious software upset. "We will be sending a command to the spacecraft to transmit down bit by bit so we can look at it and determine which bit has been flipped, and then reset it to its proper state," Stone said. Stone said even if the anomaly is a fundamental software error, engineers can develop a software patch to uplink to Voyager 2 that should resolve the problem. Voyager 2's distance from Earth could complicate repairs. It takes nearly 13 hours for radio signals to travel each way between ground controllers and the spacecraft.
