The WOW signal

The Elusive Wow, amateur astronomer Robert Gray tells the story of the "Wow!" signal, and of astronomy's quest to solve the puzzle of its origin. It's a story he is well-positioned to tell. That's because Gray has been the "Wow!" signal's most devoted seeker and chronicler, having traveled to the very ends of the earth in search of it. Gray has even co-authored several scientific articles about the "Wow!" signal, including a paper detailing his use of the Very Large Array Radio Observatory in New Mexico to search for it. I spoke with Gray about the "Wow!" signal, radio telescopes, and the economics of prospective extraterrestrial civilizations.

Appreciation Friday: Artist Sidney Nolan

Things I'm learning about him:

3. He was torn between being an artist or a poet

Nolan was obsessed with the works of French poet Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud. But thank god he followed his visual artistic pursuits, otherwise we wouldn’t have his amazing Australian paintings to boast about, like this one:

4. He was passionate about all things French

Whether it was poetry or paintings, Nolan revelled in French arts. He drew inspiration from 19th-century painter Henri Rousseau. He also loved Picasso and C├ęzanne. And in 1957, he studied engraving and lithography at Atelier 17 in Paris.

Road Rage

We had a truck following us in Northampton an hour ago. He was waving his hand and flipping us off. Now that is what worries me. Road rage! What if he had a gun? We were looking for a plumbing supply store. It was a left turn. He went around us waving like a mad man. I hate that.


king of pain

In 1983, the Police released their last studio album, Synchronicity, which spawned the hit singles "Every Breath You Take", "Wrapped Around Your Finger", "King of Pain", and "Synchronicity II". By that time, several critics deemed them "the biggest rock band in the world." (WIKI)
