KEO

From Wikipedia:

 

KEO is a space time capsule which will be launched in 2010 or 2011 carrying messages from the citizens of present Earth to humanity 50,000 years from now, when it will reenter Earth's atmosphere.

 

The KEO project is supported by UNESCO (who voted it "Project of the 21st century"), Hutchison Whampoa and the European Space Agency, among other institutions. Its name is supposed to represent the three most frequently used sounds common to the most widely spoken languages today, [k], [e] and [o],though this is in fact mistaken, as the most common sound is [a].

Every person is invited to write a message addressed to the future inhabitants—the deadline is December 31, 2009. Messages can be posted via the project's website, or sent by postal mail. The organizers encourage everybody to gather messages from children, senior citizens and the illiterate so that every culture and demographic on Earth is represented. The satellite has enough capacity to carry a four-page message from each of the more than six billion inhabitants on the planet. Once the satellite is launched, the messages (with personal names removed) will be made freely available on the web.

Kanigo,

 

Not to worry. We don't have the ability to put the space shuttle up for a few days and have it re-enter without course corrections let alone put an unpowered object into a huge solar systemwide orbit and have it even find the Solar Zip Code for Earth 18.25 million days later. There won't be any propoganda received.

 

Who thinks up these Bridge to Nowhere projects? Better yet, who pays for them?
