Hi everyone, Jeff
This is what I found out
Parkes Observatory In Oz Detects 'ET Signal'?
Quote: Carol Oliver of Ceti Australia said: Ceti is not
Quote: John Sarkissian of Park Observatory said: theyt're not
The story goes like this.
John said: Quote: "Nothing has happened here we have had _no_
signal at all". But he had heard that 2 student's at a Swiss
Science festival in Geneva were quoted as saying that they had
heard that Parks observatory are looking for signals of an
John said, quote, "I think the media just misunderstood the
student's and ran with the ET story". He then gave me Carol
Olivers of Ceti Australia Telephone number to call for more
Carol said, quote, "We at Ceti in Australia have not received
any signal of ET origin. However I was tipped off by a science
friend in London last night that the media were running with
the ET signal story over there, so I have been expecting some
phone calls just like yours."
Carol explained and emphasised neither Parks nor Ceti Aust knew

After speaking with Carol it would appear that the Internet

The joke was to see how fast the media spread the story. Carol
said, "The Australian media have been quite good and have not
participated in the joke much. However Carol pointed out that
our conversation would add to part of the experiment to which we
both light heartedly laughed.
She also point out that her phone had been running hot and she
has been unable to get on with her job. No more calls please.
The only part of the experiment I will admit to is finding out
the validity of the story for everyone out there. So, the Jokes
on the media.... I guess.
Carol's final comment... "Never believe everything you read."
