Description:   Stephen Hawking describes the possible origin of life on our planet in his television program Into the Universe with Hawking resulting from panspermia. An asteroid collides with the Earth accidentally, the microscopic organisms from another planet, frozen inside, survive space travel and passing through the Earth's atmosphere, and thus evolution begins. It seems there is a little something missing in this theory. I decided to make intelligent asteroids inscribed with drawings and paintings that possibly collided with the Earth as another explanation. The title 6EQUJ5 comes from a possible radio signal scanned by The Big Ear radio telescope. The telescope was searching the heavens in an attempt to discover any  possible radio signals that could be attributed to an extra-terrestrial  intelligence recorded by SETI in 1974. This is the only signal SETI has discovered.
