I read a fascinating article called: A World Without Human Beings. One of the most surprising things was to learn that, from all known things on Earth, what has the best chances of survival in the long run are not the famous insects we were always told will remain when we are gone, but…TV signals that escape into space and travel forever. In theory, these signals will be seen even after the destruction of Earth due to sun expansion.
I guess this will be a morale-booster for people who work in TV and sometimes feel that their work is TV-trash. Now they can feel they are helping to spread our heritage in the universe.
