Boomerang

Located at the Study Center entrance, the ETB Phone Booth is one of three components of Boomerang. The project is named in homage to the early 1980s unmanned flying object sightings in Upstate New York called Westchester Boomerang. Visitors may record messages to be transmitted as a beacon that traverses times and planes of space at the speed of light to unknown observers outside of perceivable contact, as well as listen to past transmissions as they drift farther and farther into space, hopefully conjuring return signals from the unknown.
