Messaging Intelligent Life
A The Messaging Intelligent Life assignment consists of the following: Construct an artifact to send to outer-space with the goal of contacting and eliciting a response from intelligent life. Write an approximately 700-word paper describing your artifact and your rationale behind its design. Upload photographs or a video of your artifact to the Assignment box. Students will create an artifact representing a message to send to intelligent life expressing directed first contact. Students will solve communication issues including the medium through which the message is sent, the “language” of the message, and how to indicate awareness of a desire to communicate (i.e., get their attention).
