Conspiracy theorists will love this link theorizing that Boston's iconic flying saucer logo
inspired the Atari home video game cartridge design for Space Invaders
. Fans with a bit less tin foil in their headgear will note that there are only about three angles from which any artist can draw a flying saucer, that they are frequently depicted with light emitting from the bottom, and that the year Don't Look Back
came out, 1978, was a year when flying saucer motifs dominated
all American visual media, from book covers to film posters to arcade games to comic books to postage stamps. One could easily find thousands of examples of similar artwork from this year alone.
