The Case for Transmitting to Space

story by

Dr. Seth Shostak

It’s important to note that our first contact with an extraterrestrial society probably won’t be their first contact. Why? Because anyone we hear is going to be far beyond our technological level

Thanks, for another interesting read, Ulli.

At least when we do start transmitting we should have learnt from our listening tactics. The trouble with the test burst from Arecibo is precisely that it was one unrepeated action. When we find an ‘interesting’ signal we intend to follow it up with much more detailed subseqent observations - which in that case would be negative.

great Answer @Michael Roberts
