The Pioneer Plaque

This plaque was included on the Pioneer 10 & 11 unmanned spacecraft, the first man-made objects to leave our solar system. It’s supposed to show the figures of a man and a woman along with several symbols that are designed to provide information about the origin of the spacecraft.

I guess the first thing we want other alien species to know about us is that we walk around naked behind large shields to protect us from poorly drawn stars. Awesome.
