The extraterrestrial comedy podcast where we probe alleged extraterrestrial signals from space. Many signals have been detected and many disproven, but have they all been explained? One word… WOW! We get pretty science-heavy to begin with here as we lay the foundations of this case. Black holes? Check. Twisted light waves? Check. Dyson spheres? Check. Gamma rays? Check. Hulk self-pleasuring? Check. Microbial life? Check. Pizza? Check. It turns out that a frequency omitted by hydrogen at 1420 megahertz is theorised to be the most likely signal used for alien communication and such a signal may have been found… Alongside that we ponder whether things can be sucked off through portals at the centre of a Black Hole? All that and more on this week’s file.
