The Rick Roll Signal

The Rick Roll signal is the first-ever high-powered transmission of the song, Never Gonna Give You Up directly into space. Using an array of radio antennae over an area of 500 square miles, a 14,000 watt broadcast of the song was sent straight into the void of space. Here you can track its progress for the rest of time, and watch the universe get Rick-Rolled!

Miles from Earth

Or about 0.94 light-years from Earth. Light travels at 186,000 miles (299,300) kilometers/second. That means all radio signals do as well, making this the fastest Rick-Roll in the universe.

Planetary objects passed

At its furthest object passed, Voyager 1, the signal was still powerful enough to be heard with as little as a walkie-talkie powered radio.

Solar systems yet to be reached

How many systems the Never gonna give you up signal will pass within its respected range before becoming too weak. This is how many potential alien worlds and (civilizations?) we will Rick-Roll.

THE CONTEXT

Aliens are cool. So lets Rick Roll them! This radio message is a 2-minute long signal containing both the auditory version of Never gonna give you up, along with the face of Rick himself sent through base 10 binary. The signal was sent from my laptop to a primary 5000-watt transmitter, then amplified by 2 other ones stationed 50 miles away. It’s one big leap for mankind.
