Sheldon Coopers WOW! Signal Shirt


In 1977, astronomer Mr. Jerry Ehman, while working on a SETI project, discovered this signal that was picked up by the Big Ear telescope in Ohio. The signal appeared so out of the ordinary (i.e., not random) that it inspired an amazed Ehman to circled the reading on the computer printout and write "WOW!" beside of it. It was henceforth known as the "WOW! Signal" and many believe it's the strongest candidate we have for an actual radio signal from an alien race.

While this appears to be a pretty straight-forward copy of the signal onto a plane purple shirt, I couldn't come across many too much like it online. But here's another straight-forward-in-it's-own-way shirt of the signal from Amazon.
