ET's phone on sale

Published: Saturday 31 October 1998

Radio dish pieces which may have picked up some interesting evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence are on sale now. In 1977, search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) programme was carried out by a huge Big Ear Dish at the Ohio State Radio Observatory, and it shot into fame when it picked up the so-called "Wow" signal. Now the dish has been demolished into 100 small pieces of metal mesh and put up for sale. Each piece is priced at US $100.
