Fermi Paradox Solved! December 12, 2014

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Brilliant words, Geek Stuff, Star Trek Technology.

“Beams of neutrinos have been proposed as a vehicle for communications under unusual circumstances, such as direct point-to-point global communication, communication with submarines, secure communications and interstellar communication. We report on the performance of a low-rate communications link established using the NuMI beam line and the MINERvA detector at Fermilab. The link achieved a decoded data rate of 0.1 bits/sec with a bit error rate of 1% over a distance of 1.035 km, including 240 m of earth. “ — http://arxiv.org/abs/1203.28471

Seriously, this is why SETI never sees the little green men; we’re using radio.  All the cool kids are using modified neutrino emissions (or maybe gravity waves).
