Arecibo Message bookmark

Postby LadyCooper » Wed Sep 23, 2009 7:27 am

I'm new here, so I want to start by saying hello. I just did this project, and yes, it's a bit geeky.

The Arecibo message was a radio broadcast sent into space. It was all in binary, and meant to explain basics about humanity to anything that should pick it up (planets in the solar system, human DNA, average height). Park of it was in binary code, part of it was pictographic. (More on the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arecibo_message)

I thought it would make a perfect bookmark. There's more of it and my other cross stitch on my blog: http://iamtheworstblogger.blogspot.com

There is someone at my work with a license plate that reads 'ARECIBO'.
I've always wondered if they meant this or something else entirely. I've wanted to ask for a while.
But I haven't seen anyone get in or out of said car, I just notice it already parked when i get to work. o.o
