Story: Wow Signal

By: Sri Ram

At the Colorado State University Radio Observatory, Polanski was keenly observing that part of the space, from where a Radio Observatory in Ohio had detected a Wow signal in 1977.

Polanski strongly believed that there must have been aliens in outer space and he was determined to have a finding in his credit, as he wanted to prove his astro physics skills to the world. Obsessed in this pursuit, he had even abandoned his home, forgot his wife too. According to him, he deserved a Nobel. In the last 10 years, he never missed even a single day to present himself at the Observatory, hearing all he could from outer space.

Even on that particular day, he kept listening to the silence of the outer space through his radio telescope. At around 12:13AM , at midnight , when he was half asleep, the computer attached to his radio telescope, began to spurt out letters, symbols and numbers with a beep noise. Polanski immediately jumped off his seat in excitement. He routed those signals to his super computer to analyse the pattern of data..

While the super computer was analysing the data, his heart beat heavily as he thought he had finally gotten something that would make his name remembered in the history of astrophysics.

When the super computer was all done, interpreting the signals, it finally wrote the transcription on the screen..

“If you don’t pay phone bills on time, I have no other choice except using your radio transmitter – Wife”.
