Electromagnetic Leak – Aliens Watching our TV


Ever wondered what’s on telly on Pollux or Tau Ceti? Well wonder no longer with this useful Electromagnetic Leak chart from Abstruse Goose. Graphed in 5 year intervals the chart shows how far Earth’s TV signals have propagated into the Milky Way.

On Alpha Centauri the small furry green things are just getting over that wardrobe malfunction while out in Vega they’re counting down to Punky Brewster. Wolf 359 is over the Borg Invasion and are now getting into The Sopranos, while waaaay out at Aldebaran they’re getting ready for the TV slow down that was World War II.

If extraterrestrial civilizations are monitoring our TV broadcasts, then this is what they’re currently watching.
