Nasa clearly hasn't heard of Boaty McBoatface after a social media campaign to send messages into space was hijacked by pranksters.
The US space agency invited members of the public to send a #MessageToVoyager to celebrate the mission’s 40 years of exploring space.
While thousands have submitted sincere messages about the mission's achievements and celebrating wonder of space exploration, others decided to have a little fun with the campaign.
Some sent lyrics
Voyager only popped out for some milk
Space tourists = not welcome
#MessageToVoyager Warning tourists! Turn back! We taste terrible.— kingadwhammy (@Davidel514) August 17, 2017
Donald Trump was also mentioned

The twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft departed Earth on September 5 1977 and is currently the longest continuously operating space mission ever.
It is currently in the "Heliosheath" (a bubble like region space) - the outermost layer of the heliosphere where the solar wind is slowed by the pressure of interstellar gas.
Voyager 1 is more than 12,900,000,000 miles from Earth, making it the most distant human-made object ever.
NASA will beam the winning message through space toward Voyager 1.
