The most unanswerable questions are exactly the ones we want all the answers to.

Los Angeles, CA – Feb 13, 2020 – Explore the mystery of the ‘WOW SIGNAL’ Amazon today: https://amzn.to/2vhETmk.

“For the first time, scientists have detected a radio signal from outer space that repeats at regular intervals,” reported USA Today.

This mysterious radio signal has repeated every 16 days for more than a year through “fast radio bursts” (FRBs), according to research. According to Science X Network, the mystery “suggests the source could be a celestial body of some kind orbiting around a star or another body. In such a scenario, the signals would cease when they are obstructed by the other body.”

Emerging as one of the greatest mysteries in astronomy, the Wow Signal’s origins remain a mystery, continuing to intrigue the ongoing search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

Directed by multi award-winning director, Bob Dawson (The Passion of Paul Ross, ABC: Extreme Home Makeover) and written by Michael Shaw, WOW SIGNAL is an engaging and thought-provoking documentary that uncovers the mystery and passion of scientists who do the work through interviews of radio astronomers like John D. Kraus, who built homemade radio telescopes and designed the building “Big Ear”.

WOW SIGNAL documents a night in 1977 where Ohio radio astronomers discovered a strong, interstellar signal that is believed to be our world’s best evidence of communication from an extraterrestrial civilization. In today’s ongoing search for extraterrestrial intelligence, there are those who think the Wow! Signal is the real thing, while others feel that actual evidence of intelligent life beyond our own is not within our grasp. Thus, began the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).

“The coverage of the theory, history and technology surrounding radio astronomy makes this a very interesting and informative documentary. It also is an intriguing film that draws the viewer in with illustration of the human desire for exploration and discovery. The participants involved in the SETI program expressed that in locating other intelligent life, it would answer many questions, confirm we are not alone in the galaxy and change the way we view ourselves marking it also as a search for broader connections and higher self-awareness,” wrote The Philosopher’s Notepad.

Discovered days later as a code of printed letters and numbers, it became regarded as the strongest potential alien communication, branded by a single word: ‘Wow!’
