THE ATARIS   The above message was broadcast from  Earth towards the  globular star cluster  M13 in 1974.    During the dedication of the  Arecibo Observatory - still  the largest single radio telescope in the world - a string of 1’s and 0’s  representing the above diagram was sent.     This attempt at extraterrestrial communication was mostly ceremonial -  humanity regularly broadcasts radio and television signals out into space accidentally.    Even were this message received, M13 is so far away we would  have to wait almost 50,000 years to hear an answer.     The above  message gives a few simple facts about humanity and its  knowledge:  from left to right are numbers from one to ten, atoms including  hydrogen and  carbon,  some interesting molecules,  DNA, a human with description, basics of our  Solar System, and  basics of the sending telescope.  (via NASA APOD)
