Is this how aliens learn about us and destroy us? That'd be pretty brutal.

I didn't read the Daily Fail article as I try to avoid it, but this has been posted before.
The probes aren't in interstellar space yet, scientists just think they are close because of the sharp rise in particles from stars that have gone supernova. They don't know when the probes will hit interstellar space, just that they are getting closer.
Here is a better article from a far better source:
Particles point way for Nasa's Voyager
Here are existing threads on the subject:

When the craft was made - by your reasoning is illogical to me. Whether it was made yesterday or today is not the point - my point is - the craft does not represent anything more than a manmade piece of metal.
I am talking about a manmade craft that has no real purpose.
How do you know that Intergalactic Sentient Life does not view the manmade craft as a piece of junk/bacteria/threat/dangerous item/waste and is steering well clear of it.
On the other hand how do we know that it is not going to drift for all time as a stark reminder that humans could propel a piece of metal into space but could not expand their own intellect to include caring for their own kind.

Wow, that's seriously amazing. You know what bugs me....We can achieve so much, but us as Humans, we are so corrupt in our own ways, like is seriously saddens me. Like look, we sent a probe that is now 11,100,000,000 miles away, but as a race we are so greedy and corrupt and cruel, I wish we could all just do good. We can achieve such greatness if we all put all this crap aside and realize we all are Humans and we all live on the same planet, just something I thought. Its like I'm happy but disappointed at the same time.

Simply PROVE this is true. Show me some pics, Mr NASA. You nor I nor any one else can say with out doubt this is really taking place. YOU CAN"T. So yea. I'm a naysayer. ZILLIONS of our tax dollars wasted away in space keeping us looking up like bad tourist's in New York City. And those tourist's soon learn, looking up, got your wallet stole by the pick-pockets. Pretty much the same as NASA.
OHH but wait, we can grow bean sprouts in zero gravity, thank goodness for that.

The moon landing has some things that would give it off as a hoax (fyi I believe the moon landing was real) to the normal disbeliever. However this is actually real. We got photos or Jupiter and it's moons, same with Saturn and other planets. With V1 it gave us it's own proof.

It's the first piece of technology to make it that far...so thumbs up.
Maybe it will enter a wormhole and flip back to Earth, so we should watch out for it in say 35 years? LOLedit on 16-6-2012 by InTheLight because: (no reason given)
