A group of scientists from NASA have decided to launch an illustration depicting two naked humans into space. They are hoping to use the image to lure any hidden alien life forms out of hiding in an attempt to communicate with alien life, which has been fruitless for over 150 years.

The images are not graphic photographs of nude humans, but rather a drawing of a nude man and woman alongside a representation of DNA. The man and the woman are greeting each other in an attempt to appear more attractive.

NASA scientists revealed the image in a study that is part of a project called 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. Along with the nude figures and a DNA depiction, the scientists have also tried to depict gravity.
