    The Voyager update project
    Description has not yet been created.
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    I was given the task to look into other types of marker's/beacon's based on the notion that the lighthouse wasn't quite the best analogy for our project. Below are some other types of markers of which utilize different tactics of interaction and communication.


    THE AVIATION MARKER BEACON
    Similar to the Lighthouse in that it tells incoming planes that they are close to a tower. However, it differs in that it's a two way signal so that people on the tower learn about such interactions as much as the people on the plane.

    OBELISK
    From ancient Egyptian culture (similar to the Lighthouse of Alexandria). The purpose of an obelisk was to demarcate the entrance to a temple with various hyroglyphics telling stories and other narrations of the temple and the gods worshiped in that temple.

    PHEROMONE
    alarm pheromones, food trail pheromones, sex pheromones
    Jacobson's Organ



    AGGREGATION PHEROMONES
    Produced by one of the other sex, attracting both sexes
    ALARM PHEROMONES
    Reease volatile substance when attacked by a predator that can trigger fight or aggression in members of the same species (BEE SWARMING)
    EPIDEICTIC PHEROMONES
    In instects, these pheromones are different from territory pheromones. "Females who lay their eggs in these fruits deposit these mysterious substances in the vicinity to their clutch to signal to other females of the same species so that they will clutch elsewhere." Fabre
    RELEASER PHEROMONES
    Powerful attractant molecules that some organisms may use to attract mates from a distance of 2 miles or more.
    PRIMER PHEROMONES
    These pheromones trigger a change of developmental events.
    TERRITORIAL PHEROMONES
    Laid down in the enviornment, these pheromones mark the boundaries of an organisms territory. In dogs, these hormones are present in the urine which they deposit on landmarks serving to mark the perimeter of the claimed territory.
    TRAIL PHEROMONES
    Commin in social insects. Ants mark their paths with these which are non volatile hydrocarbons. Trail attracts other ants as the ant returns to the nest. Evaporates quickly, but renewed each time a new ant uses it
    SEX PHEROMONE
    In animals, indicate availability of the female for breeding. Male animals may also emit pheromones that convey information about their species.



    STIGMERGY
    decentralized method of communication seen through ants (similar to trail pheromones and utilizes pheromones as the means to communication)



    AURORA BOREALIS
    natural different colored light displays, which are usually observed in the night sky particularly in the polar zone. Formed by the earth's magnetism and dependent on Solar Wind and Magnetosphere
