Japanese astronomers potentially doom Earth for 2015Mikey 6 comments
In 1983 Japanese astronomers Hisashi Hirabayashi and Masaki Morimoto got wasted and sent an electronic picture message into space from the Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory towards the Altair solar system.
According to the now sober astronomers, if all goes well, we could receive a response as early as 2015. Has the message of a couple of drunken astronomers doomed our planet for an alien invasion? You be the judge:
It's all fairly innocent but probably too cryptic for any alien recipients to decipher. An uneducated guess might be "We are a nudist civilisation who eat fish". Hopefully it doesn't translate into "We are open to the idea of invasion".
Your guess is as good as mine :-)
