You know, they say sometimes people go CRAZY on these long trips. They get the, eh... SPACE MADNESS.
Not plucky Lord British, though. No, the good lord is safe in his heaven and has found the time to transmit a coded message of hope to us earth-bound types.
The multisquillionaire held up a card containing the message shortly after reaching orbit - the message is encoded in Logos Elements - the fictional runic system used in Garriott's game Tabula Rasa.
Fans of the game have now decoded the runes and found it to be a quote - hit the jump to see what Lord British thinks we ought to know.
"Earth is the cradle of humanity but mankind will not be in the cradle forever."
-Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky (Soviet Rocket Scientist)
Wow, that's like, really deep.
