Strange cosmic ray hotspots stalk southern skies


www.newscientist.com

Cosmic rays crashing into the Earth over the South Pole appear to be coming from particular locations, rather than being distributed uniformly across the sky. Similar cosmic ray "hot spots" have been seen in the northern skies too, yet we know of no source close enough to produce this pattern.

All I could think of while reading this was that it could be a form of communication. And then right at the end, one idea put forward was that it could be explained by another Tevatron existing somewhere else in the solar system!

Would it be possible, plausible or even useful to use these types of "cosmic rays" as a form of interstellar communication?

The picture of the ice telescope on the right of the page is what I'm referring to. It's incredible.
