Scientists Trying to Make Us Look Cooler to Aliens

Scientists used to send normal everyday objects into space with satellites, and items which symbolized our culture- such as the Rubik’s Cube. Now, it seems they’re trying to make us look more ‘alien’ to other aliens who could potentially come across this.

Starting in December, Gever launched an app in which it’s users can submit audio recordings of their laughs. Gever then promises that some of these laughs will be visualized and scanned onto a 3D-Model, which will then be sent into space.

Many scientists think that by sending visualizations of audio into space, it will give any space immigrants a good idea of our language and culture- but I say that they’re trying to make us look more ‘extra-terrestrial’ to any passers by. It would have been far better to send up a picture of Donald Trump, or Kanye or something. Kanye for the face of humanity. Wait, actually-
