In Billions of Years, Aliens Will Find These Photos in a Dead Satellite Of all the images that have ever been made, would you be able to select just 100 to represent our species and human achievement? Trevor Paglen’s Last Pictures is a project to do not only that, but also launch those images into geosynchronous orbit around Earth – all so that long after humans are gone, any space-wanderer will be able to fathom what humanity was all about.

The story is too old to be commented.

those are some misleading photos.

wheres the photos of all the bullshit the human race got up to. war, crime, prison? not even one photo.

The photo of the Vietnamese children, mutated at birth due to agent orange the Americans used. Pretty much sums that bit up.

Massive war crime imo

These pictures are pretty cool, I can imagine it being amazing us finding a satellite like this.

The problem with those pictures is that it would make aliens think that's what we all looked like

see, you and i know the back story. thats something the pic doesnt show. for the uneducated, that picture would make them think thats how humans looked. or like its a sub species of humans or something. not that we kill each other for money or power.

Wtf was the point if all the pictures are warped descriptions of humanity. Even cave painters depicted better pictures than these.

I think a photo of Tubgirl would be an adequate depiction of our present society.

They need to put up Beiber so the aliens know who to target when they come invading.
