Voyager 2 may have been hacked as it entered deep space

NASA’s ground-breaking voyager 2 probe is more than 3 decades into its epic journey towards deep space. On April 22nd, 2010 just as the craft prepares to cross the boundary to enter into interstellar space, it malfunctions. As NASA’s planetary scientist, Kevin Baines said:

“Just about 10 billion miles away from the Earth and all of the sudden it starts sending data in the language we don’t understand. It can be called as an alien language”

Someone or something had altered Voyager 2’s communication system. Kevin continued:

“Checking the systems with another data link that they have, they (Voyager 2 team) can tell nothing else is wrong on the spacecraft. It’s just one system”

Later results revealed that a single digit in the binary code of command system on Voyager 2;‘0’ was flipped to a ‘1’. Flipping of one bit of data suggest that some unknown party intentionally interfered with Voyager 2’s on-board computers.

Binary bit flipping is trick used by several hackers. Bit flipping can actually shut down a computer or even corrupt data. Investigators started to look for the source of possible hack and they first looked at Earth. But as the distance is involved so this makes it highly unlikely.

As we all know that Voyager 2 is carrying a message by humanity into space. The message encoded abroad Voyager 2 is for intelligent civilizations it may encounter. So could bit flipping be a response to our message?

Some researchers say that bit flipping could be an obvious response by Aliens. After 3 weeks of this anomaly researcher were successful in restoring the communication system. But who or what caused the anomaly is still a question. The exact cause of bit flipping still stays unknown.

What they don’t tell you is what kind of picture it sent back as what was found behind Saturn into the ‘ disks ‘…. The bigest is about 30 000 Miles long piece of vessel and other smaller ones

Hacked? Bit of a long way to be hacking a dish?!? Could have been a space burger

Guest

can Nasa ask the other aliens that they are in contact with to decipher the message

Guest
Guest

Probably the aliens doing

Guest

All are tec is .. Theirs .!. Who you think helped make it all possible …

Guest

No…they didn’t……end ov

Guest

Aliens galaxy name ?

Guest

No, this was definitely a hack job by the Russians. No doubt about it. Lol.

Guest

Ooo. . Yep. .

Guest

Pattern recognition failure, a glitch, has to be eliminated before we assume aliens are communicating with us.

Aliens galaxy

More like a virus in the down load or a parshel malfunction in the system

that,s what i was thinking !!
