    MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA—Expressing excitement over what could be a landmark discovery in the search for extraterrestrial life, scientists at the SETI Institute announced Tuesday they had received a mysterious radio transmission from space that repeats 50-minute intervals of nonstop classic rock blocks. “We detected a signal emanating from hundreds of thousands of lightyears away that, once deciphered, we realized was all the best hits from Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and the Doors in a back-to-back commercial-free format,” said SETI researcher Duane Hess, confirming that the transmission could potentially originate from an alien civilization of die-hard ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s rock fans.

    Also featured on SETI's FB page.

    The article discusses that the radio signal comes from hundreds of thousands of light years away.

    If the radio signal pans out to be true and is in fact hundreds of thousands of light years away, then there is a problem with Einstein's Theory that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

    The only celestial object that would be able to receive a signal and then return that signal to Earth in under 60 years from a hundred thousand light years away, would be a wormhole.

    this is, even by your own standards, your nadir, Dryson. Please put up your clown makeup and comedy oversized shoes.

    In other news, all toilets in space are to be called “Proxmires.”

    That is all

    You guys laugh now, but this is exactly like the time the aliens pretended to be Ground Control to try and catch Major Tom.

    Not to mention the time aliens sent us the opening of the Berlin Olympics with blueprints hidden inside.

    I see one Dwight Huth has been taking the report seriously on Seti's FB thread. Obviously, knowledge of The Onion has not penetrated as far as the densest part of the Galaxy.
