Story: My boss dropped this off on my desk. The astronomers just received this message from a nearby galaxy. I need to decipher it and get a response drafted asap.
What is this message saying?
What is an appropriate response?
Please include which hints/resources were used with your answer:
It is a fairly well known message, but not in this format.
It was originally sent via radio waves. (~2375 MHz at 1000 kW)
It was originally 1679 bits (There is an extra 0 bit on the end to make it fit base 64)
Put the Binary data in rows of 23 bits.
