Would you like to send a message to aliens? Do you have the chance. December 21, 2012 by RT-70 in Evpatoria, messages will be sent to humans for two exoplanets.
Sending messages that can be text, pictures, audio or video (or both) will be held in the framework of international Internet project «MESSAGE2012 Welcome to Eternity!» («MESSAGE2012 Welcome to Eternity!").
Welcome message to extraterrestrial civilizations or descendants can be sent to the site message2012.com, where messages are collected and published, and will be archived for 10 years. However, to send a message to aliens — something not free, so for $ 9 90 cents, you can send a message up to 160 characters, and only for the message with a picture of the 7 MB will have to pay 249 dollars 90 cents.
It is planned that 21/12/2012 (can recall the Mayan calendar), all collected messages with encrypted information about the world and greetings to our descendants and extraterrestrial civilizations will be sent using the RT-70, located in Yalta for the two open exoplanets. First, the message sent to the planet HD 85512b, which is us at a distance 36 light years away in the constellation Sail, and then to a remote 600 light years away, the planet Kepler-22b.
For reference: the exoplanet HD 85512b orbits the orange dwarf — stars whose mass is 0.69 solar masses. The planet does orbit around stars for 58.43 days, and its mass is about 3.6 Earth masses. The planet is almost habitable zone — the name is explained by purely conventional and finding a planet at such a distance from the star, where on its surface (if any) may be liquid water. If we translate the star system HD 85512 in the scale of our solar system, HD 85512b be somewhere at a distance 0.72 AU, which is slightly more than Venus from our sun, so the chance that there might be life, is quite large .
Exoplanet Kepler-22b orbits the Sun-like star of spectral type G (like our Sun). Star system Kepler 22 slightly smaller and cooler than the Sun, and its brightness is less sunny about a quarter. One year for Kepler-22b is 290 days. Radius of Kepler-22b is about 2.4 times larger than the Earth.
