Some 60 years ago humans first began transmitting television signals powerful enough to reach beyond our earth’s atmosphere. Since then the media has continued to broadcast messages from I Love Lucy to the five o’clock news into space, potentially reaching intelligent alien life forms beyond our solar system. Blog in Space is the first entity to allow everyday bloggers to transmit the news and thoughts of an everyday person into space. Simply put we take your feed and transmit it out on a powerful deep space transmission dish.
It does not specify how exactly they plan to transmit our blogs into space but hey what the heck.Â I am one that hopes there are other life forms.Â I know depending on your faith we are the only one’s.Â I have written about Aliens in the past and would like to think we’re not the only ones in the vast unknown called space.Â Seth Shostak from SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) wrote The case for transmitting to space he argues three points.
#1) our first contact with an extraterrestrial society probably wonâ€™t be their first contact…
#2) We canâ€™t afford to broadcast.
#3) Transmitting is a â€œdiplomatic actâ€.
I know we are listening to deep outer space so the question is can a website like Blog in Space really transmit into outer space?
