We're not only learning a lot about Amelia Earhart's radio transmissions concerning her downed flight in 1937, but we're also learning about the radio transmissions of many other figures throughout history.
And this includes more than just transmissions since the radio was invented. Modern technology has enabled an amazing feat. Scientists can now detect the transmissions from radio-like devices way before the 19th century, when the radio was supposedly invented.
Here's a sample of the radio transmissions (from a variety of time periods) discovered in the latest study:
Amelia Earhart: "SOS! This is a distress call. I'm running out of anti-freckle cream."
William Shakespeare: "They say they won't publish my stuff until I have a platform."
Spider-Man, in 1962: "I'm looking into a crystal ball and seeing my 21st century Broadway show. Uh-oh. Bandages, doctors, and ambulances are everywhere."
Adam, reporting what he said to Eve in the Garden of Eden: "Call a wedding planner. We've been living in sin long enough."
Anonymous onlooker, after observing what happened to Lot's wife: "Pass the salt please."
Religious leader Moses, providing a traffic report from the shores of the Red Sea: "It's parting, it's parting!"
Fred Trump, The Donald's dad, giving a Father's Day thought ten years ago, from the beyond: "Donald's a good boy. But for Pete's sake, tell him to do something about that hair."
Barack Obama's mom, after giving birth in 1961: "So, send the birth certificate to....." (Followed by garbled transmission).
Judge Crater, missing since 1930: "Gimme some directions. I think I took a wrong turn somewhere."
King Solomon: "Yep, I told them to cut that baby in half. Child Protective Services doesn't always know what's best, y'know."
Queen Elizabeth II, before giving her first radio address: "Is this thing on? Is this thing on......."
Stay tuned. Future reports will follow, as more transmissions are discovered.
