Finally: a message was received from outer space!
At first glance it seems that it contains a sequence of 9 numbers coded as beeps and pauses. Large pauses group 3 numbers together, suggesting a relation might exist between them.
4 */* 2 = 5 12 */* 17 = 28 30 */* 10 = 36
Scientists immediately start transmitting our standard welcome message containing mathematical constants. For a while it looks as though no one listening until suddenly a second message is received.
This message repeats only 2 numbers for a long period of time.
48 */* 73
Maybe we're supposed to respond to it in order to make contact. Can you help scientists figure out what we should answer?
