Yep, it’s variants on the same ol’ 1972 My wife & I saw you from across the room… Pioneer 10 pics:
… The pictures aren’t graphic photographs of naked humans but a drawing of a naked man and a woman next to a depiction of DNA.
The man and woman are waving in an attempt to look more inviting.
NASA scientists revealed the image in a study that’s part of a project called the “Beacon in the Galaxy” (BITG).
The main aim of the BITG project is to send a message to any alien civilizations that could be out there.
Scientists think the pixelated illustration of a naked man and woman waving hello could help us finally make contact with extraterrestrials…
At least in this version, *both* humans get to wave. Which is nice, because the original always made me think of a line from a Joanna Russ short story, “Useful Phrases for the Tourist“: That is my companion; it is not a tip.
ETA: I do believe this is the NSFW version…
