Tweets in Space project will beam Twitter messages 22 light years away

Today’s flyover by the space shuttle Endeavour had what seemed like all of California tweeting about space, but tonight’s Tweets in Space project will allow anyone to tweet into space.

As part of the International Symposium on Electronic Art in New Mexico, a team will collect and compile all tweets with the hashtag #tweetsinspace made between 10:30 and 11 p.m. Eastern tonight. The tweets will then be transmitted later this year via a high-powered radio messaging system to the exoplanet GJ667Cc. The target is 22 light years away, meaning it would take at least 44 years to receive a response from plugged-in alien life.

A quick roundup of top tweets shows what we already suspected from our first look at the project back in May; we don’t have a lot to say, do we?

#tweetsinspace Never gonna give u up Never gonna let u down Never gonna run around and desert u Never gonna make u cry Never gonna say gb
