OK I was excited until I read the Error on the end of the article, Voyager 2 will breach heliosphere before Voyager 1, as it was launched first. If you can't get basic data right, I have no faith in your ability to report anything else.

If aliens really did find it, they could easily trace it back to our solar system - and then to Earth - from its trajectory.

And if they did find it floating in empty space, they must have some extremely fast method of travel. So my question is... Why would they even bother to send a signal back? It probably wouldn't take long for them to get to Earth.

The morally correct action for NASA to take would be to release the data to the public so the public could play around with the code using global distributed computing. The millions of cream of the crop college students would be far more successful than a handful of old timers (no offense). But of course, that will never happen and if it did it would be fake code. I can't help but wonder if the whole thing is fake, but then why cause a stir?

I just saw Astroengineer's post about Voyager 2, don't think anyone posted about it already. He says Nasa is probably right, that he saw soething similar with a military satellite years ago where a cosmic ray altered the memory holding an encryption key. I want to believe its aliens, but it seems a weird way for them to show themselves.

Dear GlassRunner

It would seam that you didn’t read my post on the previous page.

The NSA run a program called Echelon and that reads all emails listens to all phone conversations and any other electronic communication outside the USA world wide.

If you type it they will read it. Encrypted or not it is of no matter.

If just if it is a message from beyond they will have it already. If that is what it really is I would not be surprised if it were them testing us to see if it is worth their while talking to us yet. In other words if we can read it and reply they may visit.

Only way you'll get the data is if someone hacks the nasa mainframe computers. Like someone did to get the skinny on the fake global warming.
Till then all we can do is speculate, cause nasa is never going to tell folks the truth about anything. So heres a project for all you brain kids out there.

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

In the title, "Have aliens hijacked Voyager 2 spacecraft", I hope the term "aliens" is being used very loosely.

Anything not from earth could be considered alien, alive or not - organic or not.

Let's see them release an article when it makes sense to release it.....

How about when they decode the information?

Is anyone else annoyed that it's just NASA that gets first access to data coming from these probes? Surely data which is important to the human race as a whole should be immediatley accessible by anyone with the means to receive and decode it?

Is it actually possible to intercept data coming from the various probes we have out there? Or would that be considered a "risk to national security"?

Also, first post.
Thats because you are a slave bred to pay tax and do grunt work.

Way to make someone feel welcome with their first post.

Firstly, new poster, you gotta take everything with a grain of salt. We know nothing of what they say... so we can only really guess and imagine as to what they say and how much of it is true and how much of the truth we can actually discern based on their own perception anyway.

Here's the reality : If it is so that they received a signal that was in a format that they did not recognize, it is in their best interests to first attempt to decode it. THEN, if it is possible and they have decoded the information, they must decide whether this information is worth giving to the public. Not that it is good to keep information from the public, but if the information was that of an alien porno, we don't want our kids going on the internet to check out the alien porno. So they'd release the information through some background channel.

If the information was worth passing on, hopefully, but doubtfully, they would then pass on the information. Hopefully the media in their articles would describe how the signal came back with information in an unknown format that was incredibly difficult to decode and then share the details as generous as they might be.

We do not live in such a perfect world though!

uhmmm


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.

I know a godo bit about the voyager spacecraft, its eqiupment, cameras ect. im knida obbsessed with the voyager 2 spacecraft*
Voyager 1 and 2, like all manmade spacecraft, have 2 antenna dishes..a high gain, and a low gain dish. the high gain dish, is the huge white saucer ontop a spaecraft, acts as its ears for recieving signals from earth. the loa gain, is a much smaller saucer in the middle of the high gain antenna.
I doubt aliens coud reverse technology our technology. ours would be VERY primitive and over complicated with cuircut boards and miles of wires. Hell, the spacecraft is poswered, by RTG"S...radiostope thermo-nuclear generators. Pioneer and voyager spacecraft, to have power, use plutonium* the plutonium decays, radiation* in return making a form of energy.
Its very unliekly, radiaiton this close to the spacecraft is to blame, for the record. When at jupiter in 1979, the people at JPL manuevering the spacecraft basically, realized radiation was increasingly DANGEROUSLY around the spacecraft..they also learned this in 1973/1974 with pioneer 10 and 11,...but in doing so had no negative impact on sending sgnals back to earth.
The only other problem i know of, i belive it was voyager 2, was in 1977 jsut after it was launched, someone forgot to turn it on bascaily, so the spacecraft went into save mode* so to speak..and was operating on less electricity than a digital watch from the 80's was capable of running on. yet it passed 4 gas giants, risked being orn apart near satrun,a nd surpased jupiters radaiton belt*
i thnk its a hoax or something..

Dear TarzanBeta

We are talking here about first contact with an alien civilization or not.

Possible the biggest thing to happen in the last 2000 years.

But what concerns you is that it might be alien porn and not fit for children.

Frankly I can’t believe I am writing this.

Frankly I can't believe that you think it's contact with an alien civilization.

And even if it is, if it's alien porn, I do not care for it!

I can't believe you hold the aliens which -might- exist with such high regard! You don't know them.

Let's not deify the unknown, eh?

There are certain things that can be worse than alien p*rn...





I must admit, one of the stranger arguments I have seen for keeping secrets although I do see the point in a way.

I for one, will not be rushing with open arms if there ever is disclosure, quite the opposite. Besides, this is nothing more than an old piece of equipment having difficulties or some interference, given the distance the signals are travelling over.

That clip is priceless.

Oh my.

Yes, I believe there are many reasons for keeping secrets. As well, I believe there are many reasons for disclosure.

It is within us to always have little trust and much eagerness for secrets... that's the point. A secret may be good or bad. But you Can't Know Until You Know!

Even if it was aliens, they wouldn't tell anyone. They would simply say it was some malfunction or light corruption from some sort of space phenomenon.

Something on the probe probably broke down. I mean, it's been travelling for over 30 years and it's pretty far away right now. Honestly, I'm surprised we're still getting any kind of signals from it.

There is no error in the report. Voyager 1 is travelling faster than Voyager 2, and should reach the edge of the heliosphere first. You are correct to say that Voyager 2 was launched first, but Voyager 1 reached Jupiter four months earlier than its twin because it was on a faster trajectory.

This is F#'n awesome. I hope this is really what it looks like.

They'll probably end up saying its something else but that's what the messages were sent out for, and a response was received....

Whatever they choose to do with it after that is their discretion.


you gotta be kidding me man. I dont mean to be rude but cmon now... WE the TAX PAYERS pay for NASA. Its actual our "milk" more so than NASA's. We are paying for their payroll and their employees.


Your employer pays your paycheck so by that definition, your employer owns your milk when you buy it and everything else you buy.


Enough of the Milk analogy. I am just a bit intrigued as to how this happened, all of a sudden. Why would a 30 computer all of a sudden change how it processes and/or sends data. Weird. I think the signal is scrambled through interference.
