This is one of five lagoglyphic interstellar messages transmitted to the Lepus Constellation (below Orion) on March 13, 2009 from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Based upon its stellar characteristics and distance from Earth, the Gamma Leporis star (part of the constellation Lepus) is considered a high-priority target for NASA's Terrestrial Planet Finder mission. The transmission was accomplished through satellite broadcasting equipment and a parabolic dish antenna. Gamma Leporis is 29 light-years from Earth. Kac's messages will arive in 2038. See all five and additional information here: http://www.ekac.org/lepus.constellation.html.
