This is great. And pointless. But mostly great. Science fiction and fantasy magazine, SFX, is being beamed into outer space as radio waves. It’s a publicity stunt, but I love it.
“A digital version every edition of the magazine will now be sent to Goonhilly satellite station in Cornwall, UK, and fired into space from a satellite dish, at 671 million miles per hour. The radio waves will continue to travel through the stars for eternity. It is thought each edition will take around five years to reach the nearest star to the earth.”
Of course, by the time it’s picked up by beings on Planet X, the subscription offer will have expired and the review of The Black Dossier will be woefully out of date, but still…
…I wonder if we should beam Skepchick calendar pics into space? I’d hate for anyone to think that Earth girls are easy.
