it'd be like saying "hello" by murdering someone.
REGARDLESS of what causes gamma-ray bursters, they could be the key to discovering life elsewhere in the Universe. An astrophysicist says smart aliens might use the bursts to alert us to their messages.
A good way for an extraterrestrial civilisation to broadcast its existence to us would be to concentrate all the energy it can muster into a brief beam of radiation bright enough to reach us. But there's a catch: how could they be sure we'd be looking in the right direction at the right time? One cunning tactic would be to steal the limelight from a dazzling astronomical eventideally a gamma-ray burster, says Robin Corbet of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
Bursts occur frequently, so the aliens could wait till they see one nearly diametrically opposite the Earth, so the burster, the aliens' planet and the Earth are in line.
