moon stuff is collecting messages that will be transmitted to Gliese 581d, a planet outside our Solar System which may support life.

You’ve got until the 24th AUGUST to get your message sent in, approved, converted to binary code and then beamed into space via Nasa’a propulsion laboratory . This of course all relies on Alien’s being able to receive binary code and then decipher it.
