வாவ் சிக்னல்

அமேரிக்காவின் Ohio மாகாணத்தில் உள்ள ரேடியோ Observatory யில் 1977ம் ஆண்டு, பேரண்டத்தின் ஒரு மூலையிலிருந்து செரிவான ரேடியோ சிக்னல் கிடைத்தது. ரேடியோ சிக்னல் என்பது தானாய் உருவாவதல்ல. அதை யாராவது உருவாக்க வேண்டும் என்பதை நினைவில் கொள்க.

இந்த சிக்னலை முதன் முதலில் ரிக்கார்டு செய்தவர் அதை பீராய்ந்துவிட்டு அதனருகே  Wow என்று எழுதினார். அதனாலேயே அதை வாவ் சிக்னல் என்று அழைக்க ஆரம்பித்துவிட்டார்கள்.. சரி..அந்தக்கதையெல்லாம் எதற்கு?.. 'கிரகம்' என்று கதை எழுதிவிட்டபிறகு, இதை எழுதினேன். இதுவும் மிக பிடித்திருந்தது.

'Wow Signal' என்ற பெயரில் அந்த‌ குறுங்கதை  Literary Yard ல் வெளியாகியிருக்கிறது..படித்துப் பாருங்கள்...

At the Colorado State University Radio Observatory, Polanski was keenly observing that part of the space, from where a Radio Observatory in Ohio had detected a Wow signal in 1977.
Polanski strongly believed that there must have been aliens in outer space and he was determined to have a finding in his credit, as he wanted to prove his Astro-physics skills to the world. Obsessed in this pursuit, he had even abandoned his home, forgot his wife too. According to him, he deserved a Nobel. In the last 10 years, he never missed even a single day to present himself at the Observatory, hearing all he could from outer space.
Even on that particular day, he kept listening to the silence of the outer space through his radio telescope. At around 12:13 AM , at midnight , when he was half asleep, the computer attached to his radio telescope, began to spurt out letters, symbols and numbers with a beep noise. Polanski immediately jumped off his seat in excitement. He routed those signals to his super computer to analyse the pattern of data..
While the super computer was analyzing the data, his heart beat heavily as he thought he had finally gotten something that would make his name remembered in the history of astrophysics.
When the super computer was all done, interpreting the signals, it finally wrote the transcription on the screen..
“If you don’t pay phone bills on time, I have no other choice except using your radio transmitter – Wife”.
