How to Prove You Were Abducted

Simple - as long as the aliens don't just mess with you in orbit, i.e. they take you to their home-world to chew the fat with Elvis or something - just get some observing time on their sensors and note the coordinates of the first Gamma Ray Burst in the opposite direction to Earth. Then, when you get home, give the coordinates to the guys with the big eyes on the sky and when something in a galaxy Far Far Away goes "poof!", Bob's your parental male sibling.

On a more practical note, coming back with a proof of the Riemann Conjecture would be more helpful, and bringing a tissue sample from Elvis would even guarantee you the front page of the National Enquirer (in addition to Time, The Times, etc. etc.)

I know, I know... you've got the coordinates you just don't know how to transform them... doesn't anybody plan for their abduction?
