To Professor Hawking, Keep asking them questions about the universe. They will answer. Those small people with the very large eyes have been talking to you for along time. They like you. They said so.

dont you know anything? the greys are worker drones of the tall blonde haired people wearing blue jump suits. the little ones dont communicate at all.

the pursuit of knowledge will force you to pick a side. Choose wisely.

Yes, but that 'something' could be anything, like a passing beam of a neutron star. It was only detected once, which does seem to lean towards a natural event - if it was an attempt at communication I would have hoped they'd repeat it over a few days/hours etc. Perhaps whatever it was, wasn't for us - maybe we just got lucky and intercepted an alien transmission to a ship in Earth orbit....we'll probably never know.
i could be an SOS signal from aliens and when we didnt answer it they all died off cuz of asteroid collison or something :D tat explains why we only heard it 1 time :) but i agree with you tat the WOW signal was probably a natural event

Another over hyped paranormal TV show! Woo-hoo. Maybe they'll find what was in Al Capone's vault on one of the spaceships.

Extraterestials should be very patient with us. It took us 32 years to answer on WOW message and our replay would be LOL.

i'm going to send them this message:

"Forgive my planet-mates of lesser intelligence for anything degrading or stupid they might have said. It is not their fault, they were "Born this Way." If you do recieve this message, please know that this planet is heading for it's own destruction and I am ashamed to even be a part of the homo sapien species. So if you want, maybe swing by and spice this world up a little. God knows it could use it. If you're ever in my area by the way (assuming you could find with basically no information) I am ready and willing to go with you, so feel free to shoot your little abductor beam down and "take me to your leader." That's just a little saying we have here, it's jus-you know, uhh...never mind...Anyway, if you need somebody to, I don't know, repair the ship or feed your little space-dog or something when you're visiting your parents, I am available. So, uh...yeah just drop on by...please?"

From OP link:

Quote

And if they're the aliens that sent the Wow! signal in the first place, they are likely to be an extremely advanced civilization. Scientists say the signal would have required a 2.2 gigawatt transmitter, vastly more powerful than any existing terrestrial radio station.

So if we don't have anything powerful enough to actually send this 'message' then what's the purpose?


Quote

All tweets composed between 8 p.m. EDT Friday and 3 a.m. EDT Saturday tagged with the hashtag #ChasingUFOs will be rolled into a single message, according to the National Geographic Channel, which is timing the Twitter event to coincide with the premiere of the channel's new series, "Chasing UFOs."

A very relative correlation that not many people would picked up on :tu:  

This seems exciting at first but after reading I am not so excited. People are adding their own messages through Twitter? Does this not sound a bit gimmicky? Our first communication with the Wow signal is a binary form of the cheapest (often despised) form of communication. #WhatWhereTheyThinking?

Also to me replying to the Wow signal is like shouting back at someone who shouted at you, the trouble you don't know what they said. Don't know about you but in my local that spells trouble.

It might be more of a whimper than a shout.

Well whatever happens, good luck.

Indeed, the trouble is that is exactly what somebody has probably sent out with a message from Twitter, or to be more accurate...

Haha.

I've thought about Binary before and the problem with it is that it's based on a human invention. They might not even have an alphabet.(if they do it will be different to all of ours) Then denary is based on 10's because we have 10 fingers. So another idea out the window. This brings up an intresting conversation actually. How do we communicate with ET's?! Never actually thought about this properly before. lol

I think eveyrone who wants to meet aliens comes to this idea they might have telepathy as they ar emore advanced. but what if they don't? lol

I've heard people say we would communicate by the universal language of mathematics, like that plaque they put on the side of Voyager, or whichever one it was. They suppose that they'd be able to figure it out.

Or of course, the universal language of music. Didn't Damon Allbran write something specially that they stuck onto a CD taht they put on some probe a bit more recently?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Put it on a CD? I hope they supplied a CD player to go with it ;)
