WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- In the hope of luring aliens to Earth, NASA is planning to send naked pictures of humans into space.
- The naked man and woman in the photos are waving to make them look more inviting.
- The image was revealed as part of a project called the “Beacon in the Galaxy” (BITG) which aims to send a message to any alien civilizations.
NASA scientists are planning to launch pictures of naked humans into space in the hope of “attracting aliens.” The message will also include an invitation to respond should extra-terrestrial beings discover the nude photos.
The naked pictures aren’t too shocking as anyone may think.
The nude photos aren’t graphic photographs of real people but a sketch of a naked man and a woman next to a depiction of DNA. The drawing of the man and woman are waving to make them look more inviting.
The image was revealed as part of a project called the “Beacon in the Galaxy” (BITG) which aims to send a message to any alien civilizations. NASA scientists think the pixelated illustration of a naked man and woman waving hello could help lure aliens and finally make contact with Earth.
The scientists have also attempted to depict gravity along with the nude pictures and a DNA depiction. All of these will become an updated binary-coded message that can be launched to space.
“Though the concept of mathematics in human terms is potentially unrecognizable to extra-terrestrial intelligence, binary is likely universal across all intelligence,” the scientists explained. “Binary is the simplest form of mathematics as it involves only two opposing states: zero and one, yes or no, black or white, mass or empty space.”
“The proposed message includes basic mathematical and physical concepts to establish a universal means of communication followed by information on the biochemical composition of life on Earth, the Solar System’s time-stamped position in the Milky Way relative to known globular clusters, as well as digitized depictions of the Solar System, and Earth’s surface,” they added.
Actually, the idea of sending depictions of naked humans to space isn’t new. The Pioneer plaques sent to space on the 1972 Pioneer 10 and 1973 Pioneer 11 missions, also featured drawings of naked humans, the New York Post reported.
The plaques, which are attached to the antennas on the spacecraft, are still sailing away from Earth to this day.
