There's a new initiative to send messages into outerspace with the hopes someone is listening and anyone cand do it. A new website will allow anyone who wants to send a message into outerspace to do so. The website launches this monday and there seems to be some fear amongst the community that there's a chance we are inviting an invasion.
The site is up but I haven't tried sending anything out so I don't know if it working yet.
I removed the site address as it is only collecting email addresses until launch and posting sites that collect data is not allowed here.edit on 12-6-2013 by Crakeur because: (no reason given)

People that believe we are inviting an invasion need to realise that we are already being invaded by our very own governments. It couldn't get any worse
Though, this is great and I cant wait to use it. Hope I get a reply
Be safe be well and thanks for sharing.
ETA: I sent a message that read : Greetings, I am a prisoner on my planet called Earth. Our Mother Earth is in great danger. Please listen to other messages that say the same thing. We need your assistants to defeat our so called rulers so that we can not only restore our Great Mother Earth but also get our lives back. Yours loving, Me!!!edit on 12-6-2013 by Spiro because: (no reason given)

Data signals via radio transmissions, the internet, time capsules, etc. are likely uninteresting to aliens. Telepathic communication may interest them. Think of it like this, whatever is out there that comes close to meeting our expectations of intelligent life capable of inter stellar communication most likely does not field data signals with mixed messages coming from a singular source, especially radio transmissions. Now, if one could figure out how to incorporate data into photons and send them via laser, simulating light, that may get their attention. Einstein's "spooky action at a distance" and shared information between particles on a sub atomic level is the next step, or something very similar imo. There needs to be far more thought, revelation, and efficiency put into the delivery mode of data to get any highly intelligent life form to respond at all, and as of now, we are using soup cans and twine. Not to mention we are showing with our satellites and data streams we are wasteful and throw our trash anywhere. Clean up our planet orbit, stop sending open ended messages, let technology make a breakthrough, and maybe, just maybe then we will get a ping back. What we do next is crucial. Btw, I believe we already got that ping back, it was the WOW signal, sent once and only once to determine if we were ready to communicate and we were not and as far as I know still are not capable. When we are, man oh man, I hope I am alive to experience it.

If you look back at ancient civilizations, and replace angels and god for aliens, you can see how a group of beings would react to a technologically advanced race. They'd be deified, they'd be feared and they'd be loved, all depending on what they do with that technology.
What's important to point out is that we can't get along with each other, we have large portions of our population that cannot accept that some of us are black or white, or blonde or brunette and we clearly have issues over the various faiths. If some species comes along and tells all the jews, catholics, muslims etc that there is a god and his name is alf, we're going to have some serious chaos here.
