Have you ever wanted to communicate with extra-terrestrials? Well unfortunately you just missed you chance. In August of 2009, 25000 text messages were accepted from participants to be transmitted to the distant planet Gliese 581d which is said may contain life. The messages were transmitted by the NASA Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex at the end of August and will reach there destination in the year 2029. Will the aliens respond? Good to know NASA is still doing something useful…
