The answer to the mysterious radio transmissions of 2012 was sent in June of that same year. The origin of the signal hadn't been established at the time of transmission. It was a shot in the dark done by well meaning scientists unaware of the consequences of their actions. No one, not even those responsible for the message, expected an answer. Two years later, an answer was received.
The answer to our greeting came in binary code. Exobytes of data streamed through Earth's radio telescopes and into the planet's fastest computers for decoding and analysis. Despite their best efforts, Governments tried and failed to keep the incoming messages secret. There was no mass panic or hysteria. Hollywood was given the credit for that. For the last sixty years Hollywood has desensitized the world's population to the idea of 'aliens' from other worlds through film and video.
Excitement and anticipation has captured the planet's imagination. Who are these aliens so willing to share their technology? The data was confusing at first, but as time past the sender's intentions became clear. Earth was on the receiving end of a titanic volume of technical schematics. "They" were sending plans for an interstellar starship powered by a technology completely new to humanity. The starship designs were accompanied by detail schematics on advanced weaponry.
The transmission ended with a simple and frightening statement. "They heard. Too far to help. Build now. They come. More to follow."
Construction of the Earth's first interstellar, wormhole generating starship is underway using the alien blueprints. There is an urgency in the work, for if the warning is to be trusted, 'they' are coming and we must be prepared.
The ship is called Voyager. It will be humanity's ark.

Signs of Alien Life Will Be Found by 2025, NASA's Chief Scientist Predicts
Humanity is on the verge of discovering alien life, high-rankingscientists say.
"I think we're going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we're going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years," NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan said Tuesday (April 7) during a panel discussion that focused on the space agency's efforts to search for habitable worlds and alien life.
"We know where to look. We know how to look," Stofan added during , which was webcast live. "In most cases we have the technology, and we're on a path to implementing it. And so I think we're definitely on the road." [5 Bold Claims of Alien Life]Read More at Space.com
