Arecibo 74 pictogram, Chilbolton 2001 alien reply? by KerrAvon on Shapeways

In 1974 a message was sent into space from the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico.
It contained information relating to the human race: our binary number system,
DNA, a representation of how we look and population size, location in our solar
system and a description of the radio telescope that sent the message.

In 2001 a crop circle mysteriously appeared overnight in a field in Chilbolton,
Hampshire UK, next to a radio telescope.
It bore a striking resemblance to the original radio message, but with a
number of distinct differences... differences that suggest it might be a reply to
our original message from an alien species somewhere else in the universe.

This double-sided pendant shows a pictogram of the original 1974 message on one
side, plus the 'reply' received in 2001 on the other.

@solopach Thank you for your message. The 3D printing tolerances make the current size the minimum possible with the technology available. Any smaller and the raised areas would not be defined properly. 1/2 inch by 1 3/4 inch by 0.1 inch is a pretty usable size for a pendant though :-)

I think this would make a kick-ass pendant if you could shrink it down, maybe in SS or something.
