Everyone Needs to Chill the Fuck Out

I am pleased to announce, acting as an ambassador for planet Earth, that at approximately 4:22 central time, on this great day of the 20th of April, 2012, I received notification from Talk2ETs.com that “One Love” by Bob Marley was successfully transmitted into outer space. The message was sent using a 6-meter parabolic reflector with high power 500+ watt block-up converters. The message was sent to four different sectors of the universe, and it will be sent three additional times, once every six hours; “to ensure the widest coverage into space in four entirely different directions.” At the time of this post, the transmission has already travelled over 301 million miles. One love people. Happy 4/20!!

    Wait, won’t there be signal degradation after a certain point? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inverse-square_law

    Additionally, from their site: “our computer technology encodes that data and couples it to a carrier wave that we believe is most likely to be noticed by any technologies that may exist beyond Earth in our Universe” According to io9.com, the best frequency to broadcast is at 1420 megahertz.
