If you could talk to aliens, what would you tell them, in 60 characters or less? Apparently for lots of people on Twitter, it's some version of: "U UP?" (Are we surprised?)
We're approaching the 40th anniversary of Voyager 1—humanity's furthest trip into space so far—so NASA invited Twitter to share an "uplifting message" to be beamed into interstellar space, using the hashtag #MessageToVoyager, according to a press release.

Nasa, with input from the Voyager team, will choose one of these messages to beam into interstellar space on Sept. 5, 2017, 40 years after the first Voyager probe launched.
Our vote is for: "SEND NUDES." Runner-up: "Send Nudes."
