Text Message 37 Geminorum!

06-Apr-05 09:01 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

Canada’s Discovery Channel is holding a contest – and the winner gets to send a message that could be mankind’s first message to an alien civilization.  Astronomers and Cosmologists recently named the nearby yellow dwarf star (like our Sun) 37 Geminorum as being the most likely star system within 100 light-yeras (l.y.) to have planets capable of supporting life similar to Earth.  Although they’re not certain a blue-green world like ours exists there, a decision has been made to send a message to the star system in hopes of finding out within the next 114 or so years.
