V'ger is coming

ALIENS have hijacked a NASA probe and are using it to try to contact Earth, experts believe.

Unmanned craft Voyager 2 has sent “distorted” messages home from deepest space.

The probe was launched 33 years ago in a bid to contact extraterrestrial life – and UFO boffins now believe it may have found some.German expert Hartwig Hausdorf claims the strange signals could be alien transmissions.

The craft was launched alongside sister probe Voyager 1 in 1977. Its cargo included what NASA described as a “gold-plated, copper gramophone record” full of songs and greetings in 55 languages. But on April 22 this year the craft briefly stopped transmitting, then began sending gobbledygook.

NASA engineers reckon the glitch is a data transmission fault which they can repair. But Mr Hausdor, author of a book called UFOs – The Are Still Flying, said: “It seems someone has reprogrammed or hijacked the probe.”

Voyager 2 is now at the edge of our solar system, having travelled further than any other spaceship.

A NASA insider said: “This is probably just a faulty machine spouting gibberish.

“But the idea it could have been found by intelligent life has excited people. If true, it could change the world in an instant.”

"It seems" presumably translates as "wouldn't it be really, really cool if".

Hartwig Hausdorf is not a "researcher" in any sense that matters. He's a UFO loon, nothing more.

Either Batboy or "Aliens Empregnated Me!". Those are classic WWN headlines.

Re: V'ger is coming

Yeah Mr. Hausdorf aliens had to have hijacked the probe, could never just be a technical glitch when NASA probes are concerned

I said it before and I'll say it again - it's those damn bugs from Klendathu.

either them or it merged with Tan Ru.

we're definitely screwed now.

I'm willing to bet Richard Hoaglan's Martian face is involved somehow.

Exactly. It's a shame people feel the need to grasp at straws like this because the real world is really interesting. Unfortunately, paradigm-changing discoveries come at a snails pace, just a few in a person's lifetime. People are impatient so we end up with super market tabloids showing pictures of aliens dining with the President at the White House.

I still think it's amazing that within my lifetime, we have gone from having no ability to detect planets orbiting other stars to discovering them so often that hardly anyone pays attention.

Not exactly why it was launched.

Most people don't even know about that! It's a wonder the conspiracy nut jobs have not yet announced that we have discovered the planet of the Greys.
