"In 1974, astronomers used the radio telescope to transmit a binary code toward a dense cluster of stars 25,000 light-years away, hoping the message might get picked up by another technologically-advanced civilization. (It wasn't)."

the last bit in parenthesis.... please dude go read the wikipedia page for "light-year"

You have reached a transfer station that is no longer operational. Your call is important to us. You are being transferred to a representative 24,954 lights away,

Indeed, why is this guy a "senior writer" for a science website, if he has no idea of the implications of a light year? It will take 25,000 years for the signal to reach there, & another 25,000 for any reply to reach us. I knew this when I was about 9 years old.
