NASA To Send Coded Message In Hindi To Jupiter’s Moon

NASA is planning to launch the Europa Clipper Mission to Jupiter’s watery moon in October 2024. It is also proposing to send along with the spacecraft a unique message that has been recorded in 103 languages including Hindi. NASA has found strong evidence of an ocean under the icy crust of Jupiter’s moon Europa. It is estimated that the amount of water on Europa is more than twice the amount of water of all of Earth’s oceans combined.

The message is engraved on a plate made from metal tantalum. NASA collected recordings of the word “water” spoken in 103 languages from around the world. The audio files were then converted into waveforms (visual representations of sound waves) and etched into the plate.

Send Your Name To Space

NASA is asking people to send in their names so they can be blasted off on a space mission, deep into our galaxy. The ‘Message in a Bottle’ campaign wants to give people the chance to have their name sten-cilled onto a microchip which will ride on the Europa Clipper space-craft, past Mars, and all the way to Jupiter and its moon, Europa. So far, about 700,000 names have been submitted and the deadline is December 31, 2023.
