The Voyager images

It’s a shame that this website with the Voyager images has an annoying Flash interface: if it were just web pages it would be a lot of fun to link to and annotate, turning it into a mystifying avant-garde text along the lines of the Codex Seraphinianus or Ben Marcus’ The Age of Wire and String.

What will the aliens make of the odd, squid-like intestine creature in image 24?

Will they realise that dolphins aren’t always airborne (54)?

Or that elephants (67) aren’t carved out of wood by old men (66)?

Should we have started sending out photos of the Opera House (95) before we’d even finished the building?
