A Sign in Space
live performance, 2019-ongoing
A Sign in Space is a project by media artist Daniela de Paulis, in collaboration with INAF (http://www.inaf.it/en), the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics.
The first test for the project took place on 30 July 2021, when the Arecibo message was transmitted by a satellite operated by D-Orbit (https://www.dorbit.space/). The message was successfully received by the Medicina (https://www.med.ira.inaf.it/) and the Sardinia Radio Observatories (http://www.srt.inaf.it/).
The teams at both observatories are currently working on different methodologies of post detection. The press release for the test can be read here: https://www.media.inaf.it/?s=segnale+quasi+alieno
