Good day to the entire world. Heartfelt greetings to all. Hello to the residents of far skies. We wish you everything good from our planet. Greetings to the inhabitants of the Universe from the 3rd planet of the star, the Sun. Greetings to all peoples of the Universe- Peace to you always.
Friends of space, how are you all? Come visit us if you have time. We come in friendship to those who are friends. To the makers of music, all worlds, all times; We send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out into the solar system, into the Universe seeking only peace and friendship. To teach if we are called upon. To be taught if we are fortunate.
We know full well that our planet, and all of its inhabitants, are but a small part of the immense Universe that surrounds us. And it is with humility and hope that we take this step.
If someday a far off civilization intercepts this transmission and can understand these recorded contents, here is our message:
This is a present from a small distant world. A token of; our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts & our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so that we may live into yours. We hope someday, having solved the problem we've faced, to join a community of Galactic civilizations. This Spectacle represents our hope, our determination and our goodwill in a vast and awesome Universe.
