Character Scientist
"The inhabitants of other worlds could teach us something new! Megapolis's scientists propose that we establish contact with extraterrestrial civilizations. To do this, we'll need to send a capsule into space with an encoded message on board."

"Send a message for extraterrestrial civilizations! To do this, you need to build a Space Research Institute, Long-Distance Control System, Xenoarchaeology Academy and Data Storage Center."

"The residents beg the mayor: Send a message into space"

"To send a capsule with a message, we need to build a Space Research Institute, Long-Distance Control System, Xenoarchaeology Academy and Data Storage Center."
