UK team composes letter to extraterrestrials

Researchers across the country have been attempting to come up with a message to send in to space.
The idea of broadcasting a message in to the cosmos in an effort to communicate with an intelligent extraterrestrial race has been met with a considerable degree of uncertainity in recent years for the simple reason that attracting someone else’s attention might ultimately do more harm than good.

This latest effort has been undertaken as part of the “Breakthrough Message” contest, an initiative funded by Silicon Valley investor Yuri Milner to help accelerate the hunt for extraterrestrial life.

Whether the message will ever actually be sent however continues to remain a point of contention – at a recent SETI conference for example a vote over whether to broadcast it resulted in a 50/50 tie.
