Galactic Beacon—Scientists Propose Sending Revealing Message To Alien Civilizations

Posted by in category: alien life

The brand new “Beacon in the Galaxy” is a binary message created by scientists as an update to the old Arecibo message.


The newly proposed “A Beacon in the Galaxy”, a binary message created by scientists as an update to the old Arecibo message, might actually be more dangerous for us than beneficial. It includes key information about us – our location, our DNA structure, and even an image of the naked human body.

Should we give aliens such vital details about Earth and humanity? This question has been around for ages and countless renowned scientists have expressed their concerns in the past. Even Stephen Hawking explained that a hypothetical alien civilization could be hostile.
