Return to Part 1
January 7, 2011 Timberlake, North Carolina - There are problems in trying to translate the stream of zeros and ones that former RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge Staff Sergeant James Penniston wrote down in his notebook after the traumatic encounter with lights and craft of unknown origin on December 26, 1980.
First, are the stream of numbers translatable in 7-bit ASCII (pre-1986) or 8-bit ASCII (post- 1986)? Willing to take on the task were two retired scientists:
- Horace R. Drew, Ph.D. from Caltech in 1981, and now Australia, and well-known for producing the first high-resolution x-ray structure of DNA, for discovering certain aspects of the genetic code used to curve DNA in chromosomes, and for serious studies of geometries and other embedded mathematical “language” in crop formations under the pseudonym “Red Collie.”
- American retired astronomer Michael A. Reed, Ph.D., University of Arizona, and former astronomical instrumentation specialist, University of Arizona, now retired in Timberlake, North Carolina.
