NASA : We’re Talking To Aliens


Were Talking To Aliens

We’ve done a lot of searching for life in the universe and we need to continue to if we hope to make contact. But not all of our attempts were expected to succeed.

That’s where Beacon in the Galaxy comes in.

A Beacon in the Galaxy is an updated, binary-coded message has been developed for transmission to extraterrestrial intelligences in the Milky Way galaxy.

The message concludes with digitized images of the human form, along with an invitation for any receiving intelligences to respond. Calculation of the optimal timing during a given calendar year is specified for potential future transmission from both the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope in China and the SETI Institute’s Allen Telescope Array in northern California to a selected region of the Milky Way which has been proposed as the most likely for life to have developed.
