In a startling development regarding the newly discovered Earth-like "Goldilocks" planet known as Gliese 581g, A NASA spokesman has revealed that communications have been
received, apparently confirming that life does indeed exist on other planets.
The newly discovered planet is reportedly "tidally locked" which means it does not rotate, and therefore one side, facing the sun, is in permanent daylight and the other side is in perpetual darkness.
The NASA official, on the condition of anonymity, confirmed that shorty after the planet's discovery, communication signals began to be received.
"That's right" said the NASA scientist. "The signals are being sent in a binary code, and they emanate from the side of the planet residing in perpetual darkness. We believe we have decoded the message, although it's a little hard to believe. If our analysis is correct, the message is being sent by a group claiming to be the intergalactic headquarters of the NAACP....and it keeps repeating the message 'The Tea Party is racist' over and over again."
