How to participate in a UK radio station sending our voices into space.
As part of a new concept dubbed “Mission Transmission,” a radio station will broadcast the voices of children to the stars.
Here’s how you can get involved.
Companies like SpaceX and Virgin Galactic are continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible as global technological advancements progress.
Indeed, the year 2022 is expected to be the most significant in terms of space exploration to date, prompting one UK radio station to devise its own unique way of participating.
Fun Kids Radio, a national children’s and pop digital radio station, will send a radio show into space next month.
The concept has been dubbed “Mission Transmission,” with a live event scheduled for Monday, February 14 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.
The signal will be broadcast to 10,000 of the Earth’s nearest stars.
Furthermore, the broadcast will be sent as a radio signal, which is a type of light wave capable of traveling at the speed of light, which is 299,792,458 meters per second.
It will be the “first radio broadcast ever sent to deep space,” according to the station.
It is part of the concept to encourage children to send in their submissions in order to be considered for inclusion in the program.
Children can answer the following questions in their own words with permission from their parents or guardians:
Anyone interested in entering the competition, which can be found at FunKidsLive.com, has until February 10 to do so.
Although not every entry will make the final cut, everyone who does will have their name sent into space alongside the radio show.
The show will last 30 minutes and will include specially recorded music to commemorate the event.
It will also include excerpts from interviews with experts discussing what life might be like on Earth and elsewhere in the universe.
Mission Transmission is the brainchild of the station’s producer, Adam Stoner, who said he was inspired by recent advancements in space exploration.
“Space has always fascinated me,” he told this website.
Where did we come from? Are we alone in the universe? – and I want to help people experience that awe in some small way.”
Despite the fact that the entry window only opened on Tuesday, Mr Stoner stated that the station was open.
