To get more kids interested in science and technology, Sanrio, the company responsible for the Hello Kitty cartoon, has launched Hello Kitty on a satellite into outer space. Sanrio’s “Let’s Send a Message from Space” campaign encourages fans to send greetings that will be broadcast around the galaxy.
Fans have until August 25 to submit messages of 180 characters or less in English and Japanese. One message a day will be broadcast from August 26 through September 8. If you want the first contact space aliens have with the human race to be through the Hello Kitty cartoon, then be sure to get involved now.
