A project log for Lets Solve Hackaday.com/Space!

Transmission #03 has been posted on Major Tom's Page, along with images of the target radio telescopes decoded from Transmission #01. So far there doesn't seem to be much progress deciphering this message, but check it out for yourself and see what you can find!


Here is what a few people have found:

1. Green Bank Telescope (National Radio Astronomy Obervatory) 

2. Arecibo Observatory 

3. LOFAR Superterp (Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy)

Hello,
just stumbled upon this and I must say, it looks very interesting.
Nice work you've done already.
To find more people who'd like to solve this I've just created a channel on Freenode, so if you are interested in an IRC chat to solve this please come to http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=##SpaceARG or connect with an IRC Client to irc.freenode.net:6667 channel ##SpaceARG

  Are you sure? yes | no

We've been using ##hackaday, also on freenode.

Oh okay... sorry. I searched for a channel and didn't see ##hackaday already exists. I'll close down the other one then.
