Scientists Send Message to ETs

Rather than wait for aliens to find us, a bold scientific project  recently sent a message into space with the hopes that it will be heard  by intelligent ETs.

Researchers with the Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence  organization announced that they beamed the binary-coded missive via  radio waves last month.

The target for the message is a star known as 'GJ 273,' which is  believed to be orbited by a planet which could harbor life and is only  12 light-years from Earth.

Contained within communique, astronomers at METI explained, are a  rudimentary explanation of various mathematical concepts, insights into  how humans measure time, and 33 songs.

Although the message, due to reach GJ 273 around 2029, sparks the  imagination, not everyone thinks that declaring our presence to ETs is  necessarily a good idea.
