A team from the National Geographic are working to respond to the famous 1977 transmission.

If there's something you'd like to say to aliens, now's your chance. The Wow! signal, a mysterious radio transmission detected in 1977 that may or may not have come from extraterrestrials, is finally getting a response from humanity.

Why now?

Also I thought they said it was just a natural noise a while back?

If it was an advanced civilization, they would gain nothing from us. Might use us as pets (dibs on being a kitty), or a zoo. We can offer them nothing. Perhaps we could offer to trade universal knowledge and compare data. However, the likely hood that they're even remotely close to us is slim to none and this Wow noise is actually a natural noise..

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

So they intend to send our personal messages and hope the "Alien Scientists" have better luck decoding them than we have the WOW signal.  Actually, I hope they don't stand a chance decoding it, can you imagine what some folk are gonna be saying? I'd rather not be associated with them kind of sound bites on a cosmic scale if you don't mind Mr National Geographic, hmm.

If the WOW signal was something of intelligent origin and we reply to it now, we'll all be dead before there's another response.
Also, the little green guys on the planet that sent it probably assumed there was nothing here when we failed to reply - 35 years would would be a long time monitoring and infinitesimally small area of space.
Some other earth-like planet probably replied promptly and reaped the benefits anyway...

It's OK, they sent it in 'Times New Roman' font. If it was in Comic Sans I would begin to question their level of intelligence...

They've only just got round to it? I think frankly I'd have got fed up waiting for a reply by now. Particualalry since, wherever it came from, it would probably have taken several years to get here, and so would our reply take to get to wherever they're thinking of sending it to.

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.

Um.. that was 30 years ago. They've only just got round to it? I think frankly I'd have got fed up waiting for a reply by now. Particualalry since, wherever it came from, it would probably have taken several years to get here, and so would our reply take to get to wherever they're thinking of sending it to.

That can be our excuse for taking so long to reply though. We lie and say we replied straight away... It just takes ages to get back. lol


Actually we shouldn't start a new friendship (if we made one) by lying. But they might presume we are further awya if we don't mention the date of recieving it and replying. Might save ourselves if they are more advanced and not intrested in being friends. lol

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
