Voyager 2 was launched from Earth in 1977 along with its sister probe Voyager 1. Together they explored the farthest reaches of our solar system. The probes exceeded everyone’s expectations by continuing to send back useful data for 3 decades.
Think about that for a moment. This is a vintage computer that’s been running for 33 years in the hostile environment of deep space. What device or machine do you have that’s run for that long without any maintenance?
In that light, no one was too surprised when Voyager 2 recently started spitting gibberish back to NASA. For unknown reasons, the data stream is corrupted and so far undecodable by scientists here on Earth. They are still working to find a solution to the problem, but the prospects are not good.
Enter alien expert Hartwig Hausdorf, author of ‘UFOs – They Are Still Flying’ and apparently a Star Trek The Motion Picture fan (there had to be one somewhere), who is convinced that this is not a technical glitch. Rather, he believes aliens have captured and reprogrammed the probe and are using it to send a coded message to Earth.
