Bloops, Blips and Mystery Roars.

I love space.

I also love, the website devoted to everything cosmic, and cosmos.

Another reason that I love is the site's writers are just as fascinated with what's going on 'out there' as I am. Possibly more so.

I've talked about the mysterious bloop under the sea (which, by the way has gotten a good many hits on this page).

And, although I've never personally discussed it on this blog, I've also been fascinated by the WOW! signal discovered at The Ohio State University in 1977.

Now, reported of a mysterious roar detected from the outer limits of space on January 7, 2009.


According to the article the booming noise was measured to be 'six times brighter than the combined emission of all known radio sources in the universe.'

Like I said. Cool.

Could it be a signal from Arthur C. Clark's Rama? Could it be God burping? Could it be my grandfather trying to speak from the grave saying 'Be good grandson, there is a heaven after all.'?

Hopefully. Maybe. And highly unlikely.
