A more recent discovery explains the 'without any rhyme or reason' part of the mystery.

"Happy Thanksgiving from... W... K... R... P!"

"It's the Swinging Soiree!"

When asked to explain, "why so flummoxed?, Tara Murphy, an astrophysicist at the University of Sydney and a co-author of the paper explained, "it reminded me of my high school graduation picture.

Astronomers need to be cautious here as getting flummoxed to often can result in a giant red spot in Uranus.

Possibly the e-book version of "To Serve Man"?

Hmm...ASKAP (the telescope array) is awfully similar to ASCAP (the music licensing organization). Coincidence?

We asked the Roswell space aliens about the radio broadcasts that flummoxed our astronomers. They just laughed and said it was an Interstellar ad saying:

"Eat at Milliways Restaurant at the end of the Universe, where the food speaks for itself---literally."

" Stop... broadcasting... Gilligan's Island... immediately. Or... else... "

Listen To The Actual Signal Recording...

"Send more Chuck Berry!"

Who is Murray the K?

It may have been Cousin Brucey

@Maryann - a radio DJ in 60's and 70's. I had to look him up on the Wikipedia.
