Talk to Aliens

New Scientist reports on a new service that allows you to beam a telephone call into space. The service, called Talk to Aliens, utilizes a 10.5-foot parobolic dish antenna and a 900 number. Dial up, from either your landline or mobile, and say whatever you like. Your message is transmitted in real time into the cosmos. It does cost $3.99 per minute, but we're talking long distance here.

According to New Scientist, this service has the capability to transmit your voice, in recognizable form, up to two lightyears from Earth. According to the same article, the nearest star system that might harbor life is twice that distance away -four lightyears. Still, what have you got to lose - besides $3.99?

If 900-number connections to sexy aliens isn't quite your thing, why not do a little marketing to them for free? (Have them call your 900 number.) Craigslist, having expanded to the four corners of our own dust mote, is now reaching out into the cosmos. You can read more about that here.

I may be the first photographer on Earth to market to aliens. The ad I placed a few days ago is here. In case that link is broken, the text of my ad ("Photographer Available to Work Off-World") follows.

If you are a non-terrestrial creature who would like to have your environment or project documented by a first rate Earth photographer, feel free to contact me.

Here is a link to some of my work:

Please be patient in waiting for the link to open - there are likely to be latency issues. My contact info can be found on linked page. You can call, email, or drop in -- just land in my backyard.

If by chance you are an Earth creature reading this, and would like to have your environment or project documented, you can contact me, too. I am species inclusive.


this is in or around Milky Way and Beyond
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
