Alien Artifact

We often assume that when an advanced race of allens contacts us, they will have forms and technology that is beyond our understanding. It is also possible that they would be so advanced that they consider we mere humans as no more than the equivalent of blades of grass. How’s that for an ego-shattering experience? This is from the webcomic Down the Upward Spiral by Corey Giacco. -via reddit

When I saw "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", I was struck by the size of the alien spaceship, but also by all of the lights on it. It made me think: what if these aliens never developed the transistor? Their technology would depend on giant electronic devices with vacuum tubes to switch circuits on and off, necessitating gigantic spacecraft and extremely efficient design. A collaboration between such people and ours, with our microcircuitry, would lead to a revolution in space travel.
