'Galactic internet' proposed

Firing a high-energy neutrino beam into a Cepheid could heat its core and brighten the star early -- "just as an electric pulse to the heart can make it skip a beat," Learned says.

The neutrinos could be made by blasting a proton beam at a target -- sapphire, carbon or tungsten would work, says Learned. The target produces subatomic particles, mostly pions, which decay to produce neutrinos.

The normal and shortened pulses could be used to encode data, to form what the researchers call a 'galactic Internet' in a paper posted to the arXiv preprint server.

A second category was through the accumulation of crash retrieval studies , from event 1-1 1941 event 1-2 1942 Through the events I & II 1947 , Aztec event, event c 1949, Kingman events 1 and 2, and on, through the three Retrievals of 2001- 2008 .
This harvest was accelerated and became a critical resource category with the information /data base /documents / special media cargo and transport within. A colossal quantity of encrypted and untranslated documents accumulated and were studied. In a series of breakthroughs by the special group at NSA D SECTION with the JASON IDA project “ winterland harvest” , a primary variant of galactic script was translated , quickly followed by a dozen additional languages. A preliminary
Limited connection to the galactic hyperweb took place in 1966 , though limited by lack of under standing of Galactic protocol , access languages , and an inability to satisfy interstellar security routines. Currently both the NRO, NSA and DOSA ( Dept of Spatial Affairs ) have over one hundred Pass gates . or connections to the Galactic net. SOURCE IS MEMBER OF GROUP P516 OF CODENAMES BYWARKIN

Aztec? Sorry, Vince -- it wasn't a UFO crash, no matter how stridently some committed UFO "experts" whine and fudge.

Kingman is interesting, but the evidence to suggest that *alien* bodies were recovered is conjecture, albeit not entirely unfounded conjecture.

Ok, I've been fuming about this for a day now.

Pulsing the intensities of stars to encode data for a galaxy-scale internet?

Fucking stupid.

While the idea is sound, the time scales involved make the process something quite unlike the internet.

Last time I checked, the maximum speed of starlight is... the speed of light. Even if we could do this with our own sun, it'd take 4 years before our message got to the next nearest star, Proxima Centauri. Double the time to account for the round trip. 2.5×10^11 milliseconds is not useful for an internet in any sense of the term.

C.B.--

Well, sure the speed of the transmission is limited to that of light, but at least this way you could potentially reach a bigger audience.
