Talk to your grand grand grand... Children

Consider this. You are being told you could leave a message that would reach mankind 500 centuries from now! Or, that it would be possible for you to get in touch with a very distant tomorrow, with the help of scientific advancement and technology?

Sounds like a plot straight out of a scifi script, right? It isnt. It is a real program, thoughtfully conceived and meticulously planned out A universal program called KEO.

So, what is it all about?
KEO is a passive, winged satellite that shall soon


be launched into orbit such that it returns intact on planet Earth after 50,000 years. This innovative project aims at combining technological advancements and artistic superlatives with simple dreams and humanism. How? Because with it, the satellite will carry thousands of messages from individuals all over the world. It is an opportunity for every individual living on this planet, to send a message aboard KEO and thereby to his faraway descendents. Interestingly, the messages can be sent by anyone in any language irrespective of age, caste, colour, creed, sex or nationality. In other words, it

is a unique chance for mankind to supposedly let his descendent know what he was all about.

Described by UNESCO as the 'Project of the 21st century', it will be made possible by a a team led by the KEO creator Jean-Marc Philippe, a specialist in internal geophysics as well as an initiator of relations between art, science and technology. Other partners of this project are the International Space University, European Space Agency, FIDH, Civilisation Museum Quebec, Louvre Museum, Kaos, Hutchinson, Sipa Press, Videonet, Radio France Internationale (RFI) and Air France and many more



Now, do you feel slightly confused about the whole project you are entitled to. After all, given today's hostile environs, it is difficult to live through 5 years peacefully, forget 50,000! But as they say, by sending a message you really have nothing to lose.

KEO will carry with it innumerable messages for posterity. Some will be chosen archaeological gifts, which would enable our great grand children to discover their roots.

We should cryogenate Laloo and shoot him in this satellite
