How many things can you find wrong with this picture:
Published on Nov 26, 2013
NASA detected, intercepted, and decoded a mathematically-based distress signal from a purportedly doomed planetoid outside our own galaxy.
The signal was detected in January of 1998 but, however and as it might be expected, it took many months to properly decode the message.
NASA experts claim to have intercepted an intergalactic distress call from an alien civilization that had already peaked and was actually dying when saber-tooth tigers still roamed the earth.
The 80,000-year-old SOS was received and digitally recorded in late January 1998.
But only in recent weeks have radio astronomers and language experts found the key to the complex mathematics-based language that enabled them to translate the ‘frantic plea for help’.
The world press has been suspiciously silent about the startling message, though lengthy scientific reports are scheduled for publication in two professional journals, Radio Astronomy and Universe.

“The simple fact that we received and decoded the message proves beyond any doubt that their knowledge and technology were, at the very best, within our reach.” Dr. Kulakov explained.
“And while there are years of study ahead of us, I can say with certainty that the death of their civilization was not the result of some cosmic catastrophe. It was the result of the civilization turning on itself, possibly with devastating nuclear weaponry.”
How many ways can one story be shown to be wrong
- The video cites Weekly World News as the source.
- Kulakov is misspelled. It should be Kulikov, an intentional error to deflect liability.
- Andromeda is 2,538,000 light years from Earth so a signal would take at the very least that many years to get here.
- A civilization with the capacity to send such a signal would certainly be aware that the signal could not reach anyone in time to save them.
