An unintended “foolish” act by NASA may have made it easier for aliens, if they exist, to attack and conquer the Earth. This has been revealed by American astronomer Dr Frank Drake, who had worked with NASA to design maps that were placed in the robotic probes launched in the 70s. The probes have now reached the interstellar space.

According to National Geographic, NASA sent copies of the map to Earth on board Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 in the late 1970s. Dr Drake told his daughter, Nadia, that in those days the researchers needed to put something on the Voyager probes that could say from where it had come and for how long it was travelling. The probes are now travelling in the deep space with maps that could be “theoretically” unlocked by the aliens, helping them reach the Earth.

“If it’s ever intercepted and decoded by extraterrestrials, the map will not only reveal where to find our watery little world but also when the space probe that delivered it to alien hands left home,” Nadia writes for National Geographic.

Though critics have questioned NASA’s decision to send the maps in the outer space, Dr Drake said that at the time of the launch of the probes people were optimistic and didn’t debate over the “pros and cons of contact with extraterrestrial intelligence”. Dr Drake, however, said that the chances of the map reaching aliens is “very small”. He still believes that the Voyager may forever sail silently in the interstellar space.

Meanwhile, scientists are developing a deep space habitat for NASA that would keep astronauts safe during long-duration missions by providing critical communications, life support and autonomous navigation, PTI reported on July 27. It said that US-based aerospace company Lockheed Martin is prototyping the deep space habitat for NASA at the Kennedy Space Center.

      Who awarded Frank doctorate degree ? and how did he qualify to be an astronomer ? I thought some basic maths is needed to be either of these, but it doesn't seem to be the case. Voyager-2 which is 10 billion miles from earth, is headed for star Sirius at an astonishing speed of 40,000mph. However, interstellar space is so large that it will take another 296,000 years for it to reach that. Now what are the chances of human race to exist after 296,000 years from now ? I would say close to zero - but, lets assume humans (or whatever they will be evolved into) will exist. Now, what are the chances of "that" one star in 100 billion other stars in milky way to harbour life ? Not close to zero, it is zero.

        Gee. Earth is blasting out as much radio energy as a star, very unnatural and distinct patterned radio frequency energy. This now covers a bubble about 200 light-years in diameter and is spreading at light speed. To find the Voyager maps, aliens have to travel deep within this bubble to 0.002 light-years of Earth, and detect tiny little pieces of hardware in the depths of space. Sure, let's worry about the Voyager Golden Records instead of Earth's blaring TV and cellphone towers.

          It can be other way round also then Nasa would be genius.

            There is a lot of "alien" discussions,in the media.What's up? Unite the World's nations against a common NON-EXISTING Foe,to achieve,One World Government?Please google for - 1.Project Bluebeam 2.Holograms

              Governments and media are preparing us earthlings to disclose the existence of Alien life.
