+ - Fermilab needs code crackers->

atrocious cowpat writes: A call for help from symmetry magazine, the joint publication of Fermilab and SLAC: "A little over a year ago, the Fermilab Office of Public Affairs received a curious letter in code (image link). It has been sitting in our files all that time and we haven't had much of a chance to look into breaking the code, nor are we particularly expert at this!" Could be just plain gibberish, it could be something like those wonderfully weird letters to the Mount Wilson observatory, or it could be a message from aliens who just happened to have gotten their hands (tentacles/exoskeleton) on a fax machine. I'd sure like to know.
