Yesterday2221's channel. 10 game-changing space galaxy discoveries. This site collected goodwill messages from the public for 13 days in August 2009 which were transmitted to Gliese 581d, a planet outside our Solar System which may support life.

What would you like to say aliens? This question raised by Australia's Cosmos magazine to its readers in 2009 collected over 25 000 text responses. Then the messages were sent with the help of several space agencies via radio signal to the exoplanet Gliese 581. On website Hello from Earth you can watch the mostly English lyrics that reveal some amusing posts from 'earthpeople'. Fred Mason wants to know, for example, if the aliens are in possession of all his missing socks. Funny ..... – avayaoli
Was würden Sie Außerirdischen gerne sagen? Diese Frage stellte das australische Cosmos-Magazin 2009 seinen Lesern und sammelte danach über 25 000 SMS-Antworten. Anschließend wurden die Nachrichten mit Hilfe mehrerer Weltraumbehörden per Radiosignal an den Exoplaneten Gliese 581 geschickt. Auf der Webseite Hello from Earth kann man sich die zumeist englischen Texte ansehen, die einige amüsante Erdlingsgedanken offenbaren. Fred Mason will zum Beispiel wissen, ob die Außerirdischen im Besitz all seiner verschwundenen Socken sind. – avayaoli

Messages were moderated by staff at COSMOS magazine; those accepted for inclusion in the transmission have been published on this site.

Transmission occurred at midday on Friday 28 August 2009 and was undertaken by the NASA/CSIRO Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex at Tidbinbilla, Australia, using the 70-metre main antenna known as DSS43.
