NASA’s space probe, Voyager 2, has recorded a bizarre message, reportedly from an alien contact, while it was around 12 billion kilometers from Earth. The space probe sent the message to control center and baffled scientists because they could not understand the language.
NASA reportedly investigated the possibility that someone had hacked the space probe from Earth, but the anomaly was never confirmed. Voyager 2 left Earth in 1977 to conduct a space probing mission. It is the only NASA spacecraft to have passed the regions of Uranus and Neptune, it also have visited Jupiter and Saturn.
Thirty-three years after its send off and probing into space, Voyager 2 started sending strange data to mission control on Earth. The language was reportedly unknown, and has never been decoded until this present day.
“At a distance of about 15 billion kms from Earth, the probe suddenly started sending data in a language which they could never understand,” Physics Astronomy and NASA expert, Kevin Baines, says.
Since the news of an alleged alien contact started to surface, conspiracy theorists have feasted on information given by the NASA scientist. Interview of Kevin Baines regarding the alien message have since made rounds in the internet, sparking online debates, the Express reports.
According to Baines, something or someone had been able to change the communications system of the space probe Voyager 2. He further elaborated that a subsequent analysis of the recorded message found that a component in a binary code system was changed from 0 to 1.
He adds that the Voyager team’s assessment reported having found no defect of the communications system, sparking more questions as to how the binary code was altered, the Daily Star reports. German academic Hartwig Hausdorf believes the communications system of the Voyager was taken over by extraterrestrial life.
He says in a German newspaper that it seems as if someone has reprogrammed or hijacked the probe, but that we will never really know the truth. NASA revealed the information about the alien in 2010, and since then, conspiracy theorists have accused the space agency of cover up. Source: itechpost
