Jupiter filed a complaint this morning demanding HAARP stop call pranking them.

How long does a Jupiter bounce take? Is that part of why they will try to receive the signals in New Mexico, because of the Earth's spin during the transmission time? I suppose the duration can vary by a huge amount depending on planetary alignments

43 minutes for a signal from earth to reach Jupiter so probably 86 mins to hear back.

I think there's a two or 3 hour difference between the time zones... Thanks!

I knew of radar probing of the Sun, and the amazing Arecibo *imaging* of Mercury's polar regions, but this is new to me. Thanks!

That's is crazy. I remember 15 years ago this place was so secretive as the type of research was unknown at the time they were working with the university of Alaska.

yup literally now you can walk around freely look at everything ...and scientists can literally pay to use it..the 5 diesel engines that power this are around 10 feet tall its crazy

Keep sending signals out there eventually were gonna get a response and we may not like the response. Have we not learned from pretty much ALL alien movies?

I learned some time ago that most movies are fictional.

Do you want aliens? Because this is how you get aliens.

The universe is very, very large... which makes it hard to believe we're the only life. But that also means communications are basically impossible. The oldest signals originating from Earth are just about 100 years old, so can only have traveled 100 light years. Not only is that not very far-- practically like yelling down your driveway-- but also the signals would be very difficult, or impossible, to discern from background noise.
