outsmart him. 


Nova is the best Explorien at 
Finding alien civilizations 
throughout the universe. 


After a rough light-year of 
exploring, Nova likes to 
relax in the Whirlpool Galaxy

infrared rays.

Ann has been stationed on the Exploriens Android 
Base For several hundred light-years. She is one

signs of alien life. Suddenly, there’s a blip F 













The decoder starts flashing and you pick 
up a strange signal. You see some fuzzy 
looking pictures of an alien. The alien 
appears to be a man dressed as a carrot. 
He says, “Take me to your leader, 
Earthling.” It looks like a really bad 
show from the early days of television. 
in fact, it is an old television show. 


When television and radio shows are 
broadcast on Earth, their signals not only 
go into your house, they also go into 
outer space. Some of the first shows 
ever seen on TV are now more than 50 
“4 light-years from Earth. (A light-year is 
: how far light travels in a year. Trust us, 
it’s a long way.) Maybe that’s why no 
extraterrestrials (ETs) have contacted us. 
. They’ve seen “The Adventures of Okey 
tn 9 A Mother the Car”, and they 
think there is no intelligent life on Earth.

About 25 years ago, we sent a 
coded radio signal called the Arecibo 
interstellar Message to a star cluster 
far, far away. The message contained a
