Vince Mills asked the Naked Scientists:
   
If we fired a scientific probe, similar to what we would send to Mars for example, into the middle of the Sahara Desert, if we just analysed the data coming from it, how much of our modern civilisation would we be able to detect with the sensors on the probe?

All EM radiation, radio, television, radar?

Depends on what the sensor(s) would be.
What would you use?
