Tweets in Space: An interview with Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern.

Marc Garrett interviews Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern about their project 'Tweets in Space'. A networked performance event — which beams Twitter messages to a nearby exoplanet that might support human-like, biological life. Anyone with an Internet connection can Tweet with the hashtag #tweetsinspace during the performance time, and their messages will be included in their shotgun blast to the stars.

"Tweets in Space beams Twitter discussions from participants worldwide towards GJ667Cc - an exoplanet 22 light years away that might support extraterrestrial life. By engaging the millions of voices in the Twitterverse and dispatching them into the larger Universe, Tweets in Space activates a potent conversation about communication and life that traverses beyond our borders or understanding." (Kildall & Stern)
