PG-13 | | Sci-Fi, Thriller
A college student, who sees a UFO, uses his exceptional math skills to investigate the sighting with his friends while the FBI follows closely behind.
Not a plot hole nor character error: After an hour into the movie, he wakes his teacher at her house to discuss his math problem. He cites SETI that the alien 1,420MHz signal is the same radiation frequency as neutral hydrogen, the most common element in the Universe. Helping attempt to solve for the remaining two variables she points out that aliens would not know what a meter is. The aliens would also not know other human measurement units, such as second nor megahertz (1 million oscillations per second). Regardless how you may measure things, megahertz and seconds are irrelevant units of measure, as the signal is equal to and the same radiation frequency as neutral hydrogen, thus establishing a new units of measure.
During news reports the news stations call letters all begin with a K. In Cincinnati all stations begin with a W.
