What Is This Space Project From The 60's

Sun Jan 01, 2006 8:12 pm

I want to make an internet search on the space project in the 60's or maybe 70's where scientists transmitted into the space a radio message that contains the textures of human male and female plus some more info regarding the planet earth.

I think you know now what I'm referring to so can you tell me what key words do I use to make a successful search on the net.

I think you're referring to this:

On the afternoon of November 16, 1974, astronomer Carl Sagan sent the first digital outbound contact message into space using the Arecibo telescope, the world's largest single-dish radio telescope. Sagan, who also crafted the 1975 Viking and 1977 Voyager contact message used a symbolic picture 23 characters wide by 73 long to form the 1974 Arecibo contact message.

In 2001, a reply to Sagan’s 1974 Arecibo contact message in a field adjacent to the Chilbolton Radio Telescope in Hampshire, England.

Wow, LY, that golden record is beautiful. I have it now on my desktop.

Have you seen the first "Star Trek the Motion Picture"? I believe the old voyager probe inspires some alien life form to think humans are god, and they come to search for us, creating a lot of trouble.

They look for vee-ger, and that's because the letters O-Y-A have been erased at some point.

Happy New Year
I've flown thousands of miles and I can tell you it's a lot safer than crossing the street!
