article on World Science, that informs us that “the search is
underway for sites that would be suitable for construction of a
radio-telescope array that could receive alien TV.
I knew there was a serious scarcity of decent TV shows, but I did not
know it had gotten so bad that we need to tune in to other planets,
just to have something to do on Friday night.
I used to use an antenna, and I got three stations, maybe four.
On good days, I could get CBC out of Windsor.
Usually, their programs were better. I supposed
that if there is a small improvement with international TV, perhaps
interplanetary TV would hold some promise.
Even so, I must admit, I am highly skeptical. After getting
tired of zero decent programming on 3.5 stations, I got cable.
Quickly, I learned something important about math.
3.5 times zero is zero. 150 times zero is still
zero. So I am pretty sure that getting interplanetary TV will
be a waste of time, no matter how many channels they have.
