Ask Dr. SETI ®
I am extremely interested in project ARGUS, however I do not understand a couple of things. First, why choose a frequency associated with water? After all, we are carbon-based lifeforms dependent on water, yet we use all types of high and low frequency transmission. You can't take a cell phone or any microwave transmission and directly relate that to water, so why pick the "Water Hole"?
