Send a Text Message to Space


www.canberratimes.com.au

ET doesn't need to phone home, now he can just send a text message.

So can all Australians as part of a National Science Week communication project of interstellar proportions.

From 10.30am today, people can visit the Hello From Earth website to send a text-like message to the nearest ''super Earth'' outside our solar system likely to support life.

The planet, dubbed Gliese 581d, is eight times the size of Earth and about 20 light years away, so its potential inhabitants will receive messages sent during the 2009 National Science week in 2029.

Texting is no longer the sole time consumer of teenage Girls, Today Australians get to send text messages to Gilese 581d. An Earth like planet 8 x the size of Earth

ATSdwellers If you can send a text to space... what would that text message say?

Remember the fate of humanity could lay in your hands!

For those of us who sneaked a few episodes of Jimmy Neutron into their lives. LMAO, I found it a hilarious show.

He sends a video saying hey aliens, and they come to eat everbody. Lol, don't worry he saves the day.

I was kidding and said when this was shown to me

I would send something abominably stupid in hopes humanity receives galactic aid like a 3rd world country.

I just also hope nothing to the effect of

"lol omg are you leik aliens, rotfl this is the internets and leik I can't believe I got through"

actually got sent today

Seriously, I still have not decided what one or two liner would be worthy to send

Hoping this will not fall in the category of a lone liner according to ATS rules and regulations, I tend to agree with the poster above... Please take me off this insane world... do not forget the husband! ... Is there beer where we are going at?

Not necessarily a circle but I certainly thought that a Gaian language would likely be lost on the off chance it was intercepted by intelligent life...


Though the novelty would likely compel me to send something along the lines of, "OMG, this is the intergalactic interwebz and I totalliez got throughz. Hopes you guyz are coolz. Shanizzle."

2 things...

First, how exactly do they intend to send this message? I would assume that it would have to be some type of compressed data stream sent by microwave...I mean, radio and TV waves die out or fade into the "noise" in about 2 lightyears or so....

Secondly, how would WE react if we were to receive a coherant microwave beam aimed directly toward our planet? To hell with trying to decipher it, I mean it burns man


Forget what stupid crap we right...the message alone might set off an incident!

Hey, why am I receiving all these random text messages from people? There has just been an influx of messages over the last half hour

I sent this:


Any idea what happened to Elvis? Can you guys travel faster than light?You're not planning on making us slaves are you? Cos I for one am quite lazy...


The site didn't seem to mind that I am in the UK - I don't think it's restricted to OZland, just waiting on the confirmation email.

Edit:

Hi Not human any more,

Your interstellar message has been approved.

Kind Regards,
HelloFromEarth.net Team


Yay!

Nice...I didn't even try it as I assumed that the article was accurate. I almost missed out...

Sent the following:



I//III//IIIII//IIIIIII//IIIIIIIIIII//IIIIIIIIIIIII//IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII//IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII//IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
//IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

You would puff out your mod chest and give that green chicken liver no good ET a "Bannablez"

In all seriousness... If I could send the message

It would be a numerical sequence... prime numbers

something like

2 3 5 7 11

but in alphabetical

so

ll lll lllll lllllll lllllllllll

so the number had a physical representation they could read or simply pick up and and get the binary and put it together... continue the sequence in response

I'd kind of have figured it would be Americans who would assume that the Gileseans knew English though

Huh? 1//3//5//7//11//13//17//19//23//29??? Odd numbers missing out 9, 15, 25 and 27?

Ahhh the first prime numbers except you substituted 2 for 1...
