    6M6 Music Science Week20100813

    On the night of August 15th 1977, just a few hours before Elvis Presley died, a radio telescope in the US state of Ohio called The Big Ear picked up a signal from space that to this day is still unexplained.

    Named 'the wow signal', after the scribbled 'wow' scientist Jerry Ehman wrote on a printout of the high intensity burst, over thirty years on many people still think this could be the closest planet Earth has come to receiving an artificial message from outer space.

    Well now it's our turn.

    Today Lauren Laverne goes where no DJ has gone before - by beaming a message into space. Each week from now on in, Lauren will invite a listener or guest onto the show to send their very own 'Wow signal' to the stars, which will take the form of a five minute burst of music and greetings. Using a radio telescope in deepest Suffolk, the signal will be beamed live via 6 Music towers to a star system of your choice.no joke (disclaimer - stars and exo-planets have to be in the northern hemisphere and available for beaming at the designated time).

    It's a chance to send a message to the stars and to get the listener thinking about this most profound of subjects - what message would you send to our space brothers and which song would you want to represent our finest Earth based art form?

    The Sky At Night's very own Paul Abel will be on hand to guide people through the universe, offering a helping hand when it comes to choosing an area of space to send the message and online a starchart will update each week documenting how far your message has travelled and the time it will take for it to reach it's destination (very likely hundreds or thousands of years).

    A digital concept and all done in the spirit of communication, first contact could be yours.

    Lauren Laverne launches a new science feature - The Wow Signal.

    On August 15th 1977 a strange signal was detected by a radio telescope called The Big Ear in Ohio. Such was the strength of the signal compared to regular radio waves detected from space, the scientist who discovered it: Dr Jerry R Ehman circled it in red pen and wrote WOW next to it and thus became known as The WOW Signal. Now, each Friday Huey Morgan sends a response back to the stars on behalf of a guest in the form of a message and a song which, in their opinion, best resembles humanity. Also on the show, Huey celebrates another listener's compilation album in Memory Tapes, Mark Dinning of Empire Magazine reviews the latest movie releases, and a week's worth of free downloads are given away as the MPFree EP.
