    Do you think they’ll understand that the diagrams in the Pioneer Plaques
    are not to scale? I mean with the humans that size compared to the hydrogen
    atoms, they might think that we were pretty small and the earth is way

    This video blew me away, however, you should have mentioned that the
    website “the library of babel” was built after the short story written by
    the argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges which is called “La biblioteca de
    babel”, it was borges idea, put into reality by Jonathan Basile

    Scumbag Vsauce. Indirectly causes the server that hosts the Library of
    Babel to crash.

  19. Jure says:

    Your videos always leave me with a mind fuck…

  20. Video Sage says:

    Have the high math way of describing things, but probes/time capsules
    should also have a more “straight forward” way to explain things. Just in
    case they actually can comprehend our ways of looking at things.
