Personal Messages Sent Into Space at the Speed of Light

LONDON, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- SentForever (www.sentforever.com) are letting people transmit free messages into deep space through their Web site to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landings. When transmitted, these messages travel at the speed of light which is 670 million miles per hour. After just 8 minutes the messages pass by the sun and 5 1/2 hours later pass Pluto. In just 14 hours the messages overtake the Voyager 1 probe which is the most distant man-made object from Earth. Voyager 1 is a deep space probe launched by NASA in September 1977.

Chris Thomason of SentForever says: "As a young boy watching Neil Armstrong take that famous first step onto the moon's surface, I knew I was part of an incredibly emotional moment in history. For the average person there aren't many moments like that in space exploration any more, so we decided to allow people to create their own emotional experience."

"At SentForever, we allow people to send messages into space and some of the messages sent - especially regarding lost loved ones - are so charged with personal emotion that we know we are helping people in a number of different ways."

"People also send many fun and happy love messages and messages of their hopes and dreams. There are lots of messages being sent to aliens too."

Messages are transmitted daily from a specially modified dish at British Telecom's satellite earth station at Goonhilly Downs in Cornwall, U.K. The messages get weaker over time but they will exist and travel for the rest of eternity.
