Nebulosa Picante
 The oldest tree in the world 
                                       


What if we send information about the world's oldest tree to space, what would that message be like?





ReferentNASA's Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft, which launched in 1972 and 1973, carried an illustration, which was etched on a 15x23-cm gold-anodised aluminium plate. The plaque was intended to inform any extraterrestrials who might come upon it when and where the spacecraft launched, using 14 pulsars as a reference point.


The oldest tree
Methuselah is the oldest tree in the world, believed to be at least 4,850 years old. It is located in California (USA), near the border with Nevada, although its exact location is kept secret so that it does not suffer damage.

It belongs to the bristlecone pine species (Pinus longaeva), characterized by its great resistance to particularly dry climatic conditions and which therefore tends to achieve significant longevity.





For this illustration, I decided to include the same 14 pulsars and the position of the planet Earth as a reference point.
Using a binary system, the information represented in the graphics is specified, such as the age of the tree, location, size, color, DNA, type of soil, fruits, and leaves in its early years.
