it contained the word "hello" in every single launguage spoken on earth
as well as star charts and our position in our know universe
didnt we also include a piece of music?
We didn't send a monolith into space. In fact, we don't have the technology to send a monolith much of anywhere (except by train or ship.) The "monolith in space" is a movie (two, actually) and a science fiction book and although I like Clarke it is complete fiction and there is NO truth to it at all.

And in a universe that's 15 billion light years across, our galaxy is a completely insignificant dot and unseeable in a lot of places... and our arm of the galaxy/sun would be totally invisible.
