Scientists have developed a new message to send into outer space to see if anyone — or anything — is out there to respond.

This comes roughly five decades after the first message went out from the Arecibo telescope on Puerto Rico, and includes some updated technology and science.

Stuart F. Taylor is an exoplanet astronomer who’s an affiliate with the SETI Institute in California. The Show spoke with him to learn about the new message and the message protocol in the past.
