Prime numbers are not the only thing being transmitted in the Message. Two additional messages are broadcast: one is a playback of the very first Earth transmission into space, replayed to the planet to show that Earth has been noticed. Unfortunately, the first transmission involves Hitler, to the embarrassment of many.
The second and far more important message is a blueprint for a machine, one designed to take five people somewhere.
Nobody knows where, or if the machine will even take anyone anywhere. Speculation of doomsday devices are suggested, and many nations debate over who would build the Machine, which nations would have representatives in the Machine, or if the Machine will even be built at all.
