Hello From Earth
Send a message to Gliese 581d, a planet outside our Solar System which may support life, courtesy of the Australian Government. They're collecting statements up to 140 characters long to send on Aug 24th. They clearly think there's something in this as they're moderating the messages to make sure they're appropriate!

Yesterday I made a bench so that when the sun does eventually shine we can sit outside and look at the view from the blue house. It sits over an old tractor axel that we found buried under brambles in the garden. It's a good job I made it yesterday as its drizzling again today and its barely possible to see the other side of the valley, let alone the hills beyond.
