Pioneer 10 and 11 each had a plaque on them in case the made it to alien "hands".

I do think it was decent on their part, when they did not have too. Voyagers 1 and 2 both contained a golden disc. The information contained on the discs can be read here @

Now, if NASA has lied to us, pretty much from the beginning as some think. Why on earth would they even waste time doing this? Not only that, wasting time of the committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University, who were the ones who decided on the contents of these discs.

Why bother? Do you think it was done to feed the public more lies, and let them think that NASA doesn't know about alien life?

Where do you get that information about the plaques? What would be the intention behind this? Raise anger to way-above technologized civilizations that would bash the hell out of us?

Edit: Oh sorry, I thought you meant bacterial plaque, wasn´t aware of the double meaning.

What the hell are you talking about? What plague?
Please cite your reputable sources to back up your claim.

Who said NASA lied about anything?
The golden discs were sent out in hopes that a civilization would intercept them someday as the craft exits the solar system on a real mission of collecting data. It was almost an afterthought to add those discs and whatnot. Clearly, they are looking to make contact.

ETA: Why is adding a plague decent? Can you clarify that statement? I think it would be the very height of stupidity to launch an attack on a race that, had they had the ability to intercept, is MUCH MUCH MUCH more technologically advanced than us. That's just plain stupid.

This post will now stand as evidence of my own stupidity. Plaques, not plagues.

en.wikipedia.org... and i quote

"The Pioneer plaques are a pair of gold-anodized aluminium plaques which were placed on board the 1972 Pioneer 10 and 1973 Pioneer 11 spacecraft, featuring a pictorial message, in case either Pioneer 10 or 11 are intercepted by extraterrestrial life. The plaques show the nude figures of a human male and female along with several symbols that are designed to provide information about the origin of the spacecraft."

The information regarding Pioneer 10 and 11 can be found on the official nasa site as well as countless others via google.

I am simply saying if NASA has been lying since the beginning. Why bother even doing this?

Hmmm, hard to say.

Plaque

not Plague. The OP made a simple mistake that doesn't take a genius to figure out.

This genius figured it out. Your off-topic and inflammatory comments are not needed here.

That was edited and revised before you ever posted.

Perhaps they did it to make the public feel like there trying to contact them


and meanwhile the whole time they were in contact but to keep up the circus they had to do these kinda things and SETI to show public there trying...


or perhaps they changed the plaque on the day it was being sent out =o


and the messege on it is not what we thought!

Nope, if you were stupid you would not have picked up on it.

Kudos for showing humility

I didn´t questioned your grammar, I was talking about myself, look at my location and understand that english is not my mother language. I never blamed you, look at my edit seconds after I posted it. This was when I hit LEO translator for plaque (I thought you meant bacteria!!!) So please step back, I wasn´t even adressing you.

But to stay on topic:
No one will ever know

Back to the topic!

I don't think NASA as a whole is lying about anything.

That said, surely there is a compartmentalized group within it if for no other reason than to explain anomalies.

If there is an extraterrestrial cover-up going on then everything NASA has done has been a lie and a smokescreen. And yes, it has all been a pack of lies and there is a cover-up going on. Maybe you're just now waking up to that fact, but its the truth of the matter.

Can you prove that?

Evidence? Links?
