An Australian website is enabling internet users to send a text message to the Gliese 581d exoplanet, in the hope of making contact with aliens or extraterrestrials. The website has been set up to mark national science week in Australia
The messages are being sent to Gliese 581d, a planet eight times heavier than our own located more than 20 light years away in the constellation Libra. Scientists have identified Gliese 581d as the nearest Earthlike planet outside our solar system, and thus perhaps likely to support life.
