E.T. Phones Us?

I meant to write a good post about this cool article I saw on astro-ph the other day, but alas, I’ve been too busy. Luckily, Universe Today already talked about it! If you are astronomically minded, the paper itself is only 5 pages and worth the read.

Can you imagine how different “Contact” would be if Ellie was staring at Cepheid light curves instead of “listening” through the VLA? Okay, not THAT much different in regards to the overall story, but not as fun for the radio-nerds. 😉

    Would you mind if I created a feed for your blog on livejournal? I was pointed towards it a by a fellow blogger and find it really interesting – well, and reading it directly on my fl is somehow more convenient.
    No problem if not!

    Thanks for the compliment! Sure, I won’t mind at all.
