Oh now thats an absolutely novel idea!
Might be ridiculous but very interesting!
And how would one read the data?
Maybe a massive wash of magnetic/electrostatic forces, of the likes of major solar event scheduled maybe a few years from now?
Something that would re-orient the rings to show a mosaic of sorts? Or maybe reflect/refract/process the wash into intelligible radio signals? Sort of
like a signal decoder or a passive RF ID system that just needs an energy source?
very cool.. almost makes a plot for a decent sci-fi!
