Heeeey.... so it's been a while..
So, I am a giant nerd. And I love space, and aliens, and conspiracy theories.
This is the Arecibo Message
, and it’s response
So, the Arecibo Message (on the left) was a radio message sent out into space in 1974. Basically, it’s a message to any intelligent life saying, “Hey guys! We’re humans on Earth, and here’s all the info you need to destroy us!” I mean, not exactly. There’s info about our number system, atomic numbers of a few elements, out DNA structure, what we look like, our solar system, and depiction of the radio telescope it was sent from.
is on the right. It was received as a crop circle in England in 2001. It uses the same structure as the message we sent out, but there are obvious difference.
Now, do I believe the response is legit? No, probably not.
Do I love hearing about it anyways? You bet!
Hopefully I can find a decent frame to put it in.
