Not if the scale of the objects in the image is 1:1 unless they forgot to include another scale for the lower part of the image! :?

Elvis should be replaced with Barry Manilow or Bieber... if you really want to piss them off enough to come and find you!

I don’t know. I’ll try and find out. Should be on the Voyager wiki.

https://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/golden-record/

Well I stand corrected.

It’s called The Holden Record. It contains many things. Sounds, images and Music.

Sounds of nature, animals, ocean, and everything imaginable to give an impression of our earthly life and culture.

Does he’s from then world leaders like Jimmy Carter.

And many songs from different countries such as US, pNG, Australia, Germany, Japan, and France. Even songs from China, Indonesia, Dominican Republic and Russia. How’s that for global cooperation during the Cold War?

The American songs were Jazz pieces by Louis Armstrong.

I’ll take Louis Armstrong anyway over Bieber. :lol:

If we assume the people are 160-180cm tall, then the map would be about 4 meters if the scale was 1:1. Also the Voyager is shown in two different sizes, so you can't have a single scale for both. And the bottom part seems to be the planets, so 1:1 scale wouldn't work.

Have you also noticed that the “craft” looks like a paper boat sitting on a block/weight? :?

If indeed an alien life-form was to land on Earth with the best of intentions, I doubt it would take long before one or more idiotic humans would make their way to this craft to try to pinch something so they can sell it!

Or they might abduct one of the juvenile aliens and put it in a jar so their kids can have fun with it at home! Such is the daft thinking of most humans…

Man is so fallacious that I doubt he could possibly get along with any other life-form without such a relationship going sour very quickly!

Of course, an alien life-form capable of reaching us would no doubt be light-years ahead of us in technology so our punishment would be severe, and for this reason I hope nobody ever comes to find us… it wouldn’t last… WE wouldn’t last!

I for one, have zero faith in mankind achieving anything worthwhile outside this planet or being able get along with anybody that may be out there… it’s one of the things that is obvious to me and lends credence to what the bible says about us being “bad” and needing to be saved!

Must speak to my best mate at Lockheed Martin about those sightings. :lol:


Yes, and so many have claims of sighting the Lock Ness Monster too, but no one can find the damn thing. :D

But it is good for the tourist business when these so called sightings are claimed before the summer holidays each year. :wink:

I have driven by Area 51 dozens of times and there is also a Boeing 737 that has it’s windows all covered and makes a short flight to Area 51 from Las Vegas each day. It is just middle of nowhere where the US works on very secretive projects until they are exposed to the public.

However, I don’t think ET & Paul are on those flights going to Vegas for a night out. :lol:
