What about the Voyager Golden Records?

Radio waves travel at light speed in a vacuum, the Voyager records just got to the edge of the universe having left earth decades to go, it takes just 8.5 hours at light speed to reach pluto, it's safe to say they've passed the records.

Excuse me? Nothing sent from earth has reached the edge of the universe. It would take a bit longer than "decades" to do that.

The Voyager records just left our solar system, no where near 'the edge of the universe'.

the solar system extends far past plu I know what you were trying to say, but still.

But haven't we been sending radio waves into space long before the Beatles ever existed?

They wouldn't make it that far.
Space isn't a true vacuum.

What that means is that radio waves travel at the same speed as light does. Light doesn't travel through true vacuum either.

That's true, but being realistic, how far would the signal propagate before diminishing?

If Voyager is throwing a bottle into the ocean, then sending a radio signal of a song is like screaming at the waves.

If we have to be trully realistic, then you're right. Since the vacuum of space is not actually "nothing", eventually the radio wave will be absorbed by the particles in space and the wave will cease to exist. But it will still go quite a long way before that happens. The same thing happens with the light from stars. If there was really nothing to absorb or reflect all of the light, then space would be filled with infinite light, instead of darkness.

Thanks, but I gotta give credit to my main man Sagan for most of it.

Very, very, very long. It takes 17 hours for the radiowaves from earth to be sent to Voyager 1. And that is just 8 Ghz. A couple of hundred lightyears or so would not be a problem.

Hoe freaky would it be if the alien race responded in English, they were so smart, they learned our language in one song.

That's impossible. They could learn all the words in the song, our syntax, and what have you, but they wouldn't be able to learn from nothing.

Still impossible. If they were hypothetically "smart" enough to get our entire language from one song (impossible) then they would be smart enough to visit earth and would collect data that way and learn all the languages that way.

We should've sent them porn. It would be a lot better for them to understand the human race.

Actually the first broadcast powerful enough to be heard far into space was the 1936 olympics, so the first song heard by aliens would likely be Nazi Germany's national anthem.

Or what remains of it. It is most likely been too distorted to be analyzed to hear the words considering technology back then.
