THE WOW SIGNAL
Science is important to Teamlaverne, and now Teamlaverne wants you to be important to science....maybe.
A Brief History Of Wow
In on the 15th August 1977 Dr. Jerry R. Ehman detected a narrowband radio signal whilst working at The Big Ear radio telescope of Ohio State University. The signal lasted for 72 seconds and was never detected again. The origin of the signal is debated but there were expected hallmarks of potential non-terrestrial and non-solar system origin.
Skocked by the read out on the paper chart, Dr Ehman circled it and wrote 'wow' next to it, hence the name.
Where You Come In
So, here's how TeamLaverne's wow signal will work. Rather than recieving signals, this is all about sending them; or rather you sending them.
We want you to pick a song that, in your opinion, best represents humanity. That song, along with your message will be sent via a radio telescope to a point outside the solar system to be discovered by....who knows?
This is your opportunity to talk to the stars, potentially make first contact, and introduce us to our neighbours (universally speaking).
Email Lauren your suggestion for a track and an outline of what your message would be, and your voice could be on its way in to outer space and beyond
