eekSpeak subject for Saturday 4th June at noon SLT: Should we answer the WOW! signal?

4 weeks ago 15

In 1977 a signal from space was detected, a signal that might have come from aliens.  It is now known as the WOW! Signal.  There are rumors that a second WOW! signal was received recently from the same area.  Should we answer it?

It might be dangerous to let aliens know we are here.  Perhaps we should hide.  On the other hand, they probably can detect our presence anyway and not answering could be considered rude.  And it would be amazing to contact aliens.

Will they come here?  Where will they land?  The White House lawn?  Montana?  The middle of the sea?  Are there protocols for ‘first contact’?

Join us at GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT to discuss our plans for meeting aliens.  Because they are probably out there, somewhere.  Bring a star map.

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
