If there's intelligent life within 100 light years of our planet, it's likely they've already gotten an earful (or antennae-ful, or whatever analogous organ-ful) of our radio and TV shows, which have been leaking into space since we first started broadcasting them. Scientists have also sent messages, images and even phonograph records into space in order to show E.T. that humanity isn't just about 'The Lone Ranger' and 'I Love Lucy.'
