Is it time to send another message to intelligent aliens? Some scientists think so.

Scientists have developed a new message for any intelligent aliens that might be out there. And they want feedback on whether to send it.

The technology required to send the message is not ready yet. And if and when the note is transmitted, it would take thousands of years to reach its destination. In other words, nobody expects a response from ET any time soon. But the researchers behind the alien memo hope their ideas will open up a dialogue about how to contact aliens and what to say — and how to perpetuate humanity as a species.
