Dr. Ellie Arroway, after years of searching, finds conclusive radio proof of extraterrestrial intelligence, sending plans for a mysterious machine.
The frequency transmission, which is used to send data in spaced Prime number packet bursts, beginning at two, and ending at ninety-seven, from Vega, is at 4.4623 GHz. 44623 is also a Prime number.
CQ, this is W9GFO. CQ, this is W9GFO here. Come back?
When the alien signal is heard for the first time, they state that the star Vega is about to set. Yet outside the window the radio telescope array is clearly still pointing up at the sky, when it should be pointing to the horizon.
