    What kind of transmission do they use? I thought most of our transmissions decayed after only a couple light years.

    • Depends a lot on the quality of the receiver. I have read that the Arecibo radio telescope could exchange messages with a similar instrument elsewhere in the galaxy.

      But I wonder is this message talks louder than all the world’s TV transmitters.

  2. Stephen Hawking does not approve.

    Great, an engraved invitation to interstellar invaders.  The Comet Empire will be here in no time.

    We’d better get started on Earth’s image upgrade while there’s still time.

    At first I read “..mass hailing bacon…”. THAT’s how you get the attention of aliens.

      What is the smell of space?
      “The best description I can come up with is metallic; a rather pleasant sweet metallic sensation.”
      … they have noticed a distinct smell of seared meat and ozone…

      Sweet, metallic, seared meat scent?  I can only deduce that space already smells like Bacon Salt…

    Iteration 17294536: I’m alone now. Uhm … On the island alone. Please, someone come. The others, they’re … they’re dead. I-it killed them. I-it killed them all.
