Ask Dr. SETI ®
I have this project to do for school. I have to design a SETI poster that can be sent into space. I'm really stuck on a design. I was wondering if you could please give me some ideas about what to include in a SETI message. I'm thinking to include the solar system and a picture of a male and a female. I desperately need some ideas. Please help!!
The Doctor Responds:
The best way to design an interstellar message is to turn the question around. What would you most like to receive in a message from extraterrestrials? Answer that question, and you can imagine what they might wish to learn about us. Then, it's simply a matter of deciding how best to convey that information.
Good luck with your school project. I hope your teacher (and the extraterrestrials!) enjoy your message.
