Response being sent to Wow! signal

92 posts in this topic

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..

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.

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

One of the possible stars that this could have been sent from has gone supernova in the meantime....its cool to think that maybe it was a one-time SOS call from a race not too much above our technological level (advanced enough to sent it, not advanced enough to move planets). Chances are though, that it was natural noise.

Hopefully "bad aliens" get the signal first and come get us.

I think it was probably just their way of saying "OMG", or "LOL".

maybe that was it. it was really the LOL signal.

A natural noise has to be created by something or that something would not exist

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.
