And since Polaris is so far away, the aliens won't be hearing it until the 471st anniversary of the song
What a waste of the deep space network. How about funding some research instead of doing this, NASA?
They should broadcast Rust in Peace... Polaris by Megadeth sometime.
Or just send them Tom Cruise's big psycho rant on Scientology. The aliens would be very interested in how he's doing since the probing.
I dunno, we certainly wouldn't want them sending any more space ships that look like Boeing 707s here and then blowing up their passengers in a volcano with H-bombs.
Nothing would say "hello" better then Whiplash by Metallica.
Do you really want to piss of some potentially hostile aliens by sending that crap out there?
862 years from now, the response from the alien listening post at Polaris: "Can you send us the Fiona Apple version of the song? We have an iTunes code for it."
Crap? Oh someone clearly needs to read this book. It's a collection of essays by 20 different philosophy professors. I approve!
Why are they sending an MP3 file? Bandwidth too expensive? Really, wouldn't it make sense to send the least complex file possible so the aliens could easily intercept and decode it?
Meanwhile, on Polaris, some alien is kicking back watching DirecTV when a bunch of garbled video junk interrupts the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy. "F-in DirecTV crappy signal," he says, totally missing NASA's attempt to reach out to our interstellar brethren.
mcarnes, I just saw your avatar and it made me think:
"Hey NASA, you're fired!"
