Personal Messages Sent into Space at the Speed of Light


LONDON, U.K. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — SentForever are letting people transmit free messages into deep space through their Web site to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landings. When transmitted, these messages travel at the speed of light, which is 670 million miles per hour. After just 8 minutes the messages pass by the sun and 5 1/2 hours later pass Pluto. In just 14 hours the messages overtake the Voyager 1 probe, which is the most distant man-made object from Earth.
