    But I think they did a pretty good job.

    Here is a web site about the record and it's contents.

    I would agree with you. But I was more of a mind that we shouldnt tell the prospective aliens anything about us, given they are just as likely to want to invade as to be friends.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    There are soooooooooo many factors to take into consideration when assuming that ETs could ever listen to an album. Not least including that our biology is largely adapted to our environment. Assuming, somehow, that ETs even have the biological mechanisms to perceive sonic vibrations through an atmosphere, it will most likely sound completely distorted in whatever atmosphere it's played in. There's a great podcast called Twenty Thousand Hertz that actually delved into this a bit ago where they simulated what certain things would sound like just on planets within our solar system.

    IF there are aliens, which I doubt, I think the likelihood of the probes being found is quite high...


    Of course
