This has got to be a mistake

While the computer was performing its random test scans with the Array, it picked up the string “30CD” in the RXJ1242-11 galaxy. Aside from being a four letter string, this is also Unicode for the Japanese character “ネ”. I’m pretty sure there aren’t any Japanese transmitting signals 650M light years away from Earth, so I’m going assume this is probably a glitch in the software—and not the biggest news, ever, in the history of life the universe and everything.

(wow?)
