SETI finds interesting signal


An interesting signal has been discovered by SETI. No real evidence of Someone Out There, but not fully explainable either. Maybe aliens should send spacemail, not signals: Rutgers electrical engineering professor, Christopher Rose, has an article on Nature magazine's cover today describing the most efficient way for our civilization to be discovered by aliens. On this question of better to 'write or radiate', his conclusions: better not to send radio transmission, when physical media like DNA on an asteroid can declare a terrestrial presence.

Similar to what motivated Voyager scientists to attach a plaque for the outbound trip.
