Advertising to Aliens!

I saw this in my local paper and had to share.

A tortilla chip-maker is to send a TV advert into space, hoping it will be seen by aliens. Doritos’ £150,000 idea will see the ad fired via radar at 47 Ursae Majoris, a star in the Great Bear constellation similar to our sun. ‘It will potentially be seen by billions of aliens,’ said Prof. Tony van Eyken, head of a Norwegian space centre which will send it out in June.

I had to check the date on the paper just to make sure it wasnt April Fools Day! You couldn’t make it up :-).
