Cape Village - The questionable signal received from interstellar space in 1977 continues to be a problem and as however, escapes a natural explanation, a professional has certainly said.

Specialists working at the Substantial Ear broadcast observatory at Ohio State University in 1977 discovered a record of a signal obtained from deep space.

"It's called the 'Wow' signal considering it was wasn't heard or picked up at the time. It was in the computer record which in those days was printed out on slabs of paper," Professor Paul Davies informed News24.

Davies is the chair of the Seti (Search for Extraterrestrial Cleverness): Post-Detection Science and Technological innovation Taskgroup of the International Academy of Astronautics as well as a professor at Arizona State College.

"It was a rather extensive pulse; it was wasn't a blip. It's never ever been satisfactorily clarified as a natural phenomenon," he said.

In his search for extraterrestrial cleverness, Davies stated that in the early on 60s mainstream experts regarded the specialty as ludicrous ( via news24.com ).
