Sending a Song Across the Universe. Erica Nelson UCGEN 1750 Final Project. From Liverpool to Polaris.
There’s no life on Polaris. But even if there was, the conditions would have to be just right for the song to be heard. (This, of course, is assuming the inhabitants can hear the same way humans do.) The inhabitants would also have to have the right equipment (an antenna and some kind of receiver and a device to play the song) in order to hear the song.
Even though I don’t think this transmission was anything other than entertaining, I like the idea of this song traveling “on and on across the universe” to the star and beyond it. Even though the chances are slim now, I like the possibility of something with the right antenna and receiver coming into contact with the transmission and hearing the song, even if just for a moment. Maybe something like that will be possible 400 years from now.
