The S.E.T.I. (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) project was officially born on February 1, 1985. It is the culmination of various research and studies aimed at searching for life in the universe. In 1977, the media sensation aroused the reception of a 72-second signal that went down in history as the "WOW!" message ( 6EQUJ5 ). The values (from 1 to 9 and from A to Z) indicate an intensity probably linked to an intelligent transmission.
The signal came from the constellation of Sagittarius, from a star called 2MASS 19281982-2640123 which is 1800 light years away from the earth.
I have imagined that , for each of the different signal strengths, there was a music transmission.
