What messages have we sent to aliens?

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

In the early 19th century, Austrian astronomer Joseph Johann Von Littrow earnestly proposed that humans dig trenches configured in vast geometric patterns in the Sahara desert, fill them with kerosene and light them ablaze.

The idea was to send a clear message to alien civilizations living elsewhere in the solar system: We are here.

Von Littrow never saw his idea come to fruition. Still, long after he proposed his ambitious plan, we haven't stopped our attempts to contact extraterrestrial life.

So, what messages have we sent to aliens?

Dunno why, but your post gave me an image of an aliens landing, and as they declare that they've come in peace, there's a meter maid with a boot wondering where to put it. Must be a whimsical mood.

Also, we can say whatever we want as long as we don't p*** them off. Aw, who am I kidding, of course we'd p*** them off. Disgusted, and leave they will.

I would communicate with aliens by creating a crop formation saying

"Nothing to see here."

Frank Drake, Carl Sagan and others devised a binary message which was sent to the M-13 star cluster in the constellation Hercules, in 1974. They used the since-collapsed Arecibo dish antenna and its transmitter to send it. The message was encoded in a two-tone audio format, to represent the 'ones' and 'zeros' of the binary bits. A recording of the message is linked below:

LOL.

The electromagnetic transmissions we have spewing out for many decades surely means that any self respecting, intelligent alien species is giving us a wide berth. Might as well have a huge neon sign above earth saying "we're crazy" lol.
