CAPE CANAVERAL (CBSMiami) – NASA could soon be sending pictures of naked earthly humans to aliens.
Yes, you heard that right.
Researchers have put forward a proposal for a message to be transmitted from Earth out into the Milky Way, in hopes that extraterrestrials will find it.
The message plan includes representations of DNA, a map of the solar system and illustrations of nude humans waving "hi" – one male and one female.
The message ends with an invitation for extraterrestrials to respond using their own telescopic technology.
