Decoded Drake pictogram contained in radio message from the constellation
Vulpecula, detected in A.D. 2175 by the Spielberg radio telescope
in Mechnikov Crater, part of the University of California at Far Side.
The message consists of 1,711 zero and one bits the product of the
prime numbers 29 and 59. Arranging the bits in 29 rows of
59 columns produces the image shown, apparently a depiction of the
beings dubbed "tripod" and "pup" who sent the message . . .
From the novel Golden Fleece by Robert J. Sawyer.
