    Every time Hari Raya Aidilfitri comes around, we revel in the joy of forgiveness, family and friends. The month of Ramadan with its practice of fasting builds one’s empathy for the less fortunate, and helps one focus on the things that truly matter. In the spirit of the season, all of us in Berjaya Clubs wish all our members Selamat Hari Raya and happy holidays!

    Kicking off this issue is a mysterious, whimsical look at the famous WOW! signal that was detecting from space decades ago. Does it indicate intelligent life in outer space? On the other hand, there are plenty mysteries on earth, especially in our ocean depths. To get your feet wet in these explorations, we take a look at several beautiful, intriguing sea caves. These natural rock formations carved out by ocean waves are awe-inspiring.

    Closer to home, we have a delectable feature on teh tarik, a short history of the tennis racket that we take for granted, and a look at whether our love of tablets is killing off our reliance on laptops. The answer may surprise you.

    Speaking of surprises, stay abreast of the exciting goings-on at all our clubs, as well as reports on the delightful events that have taken place in the last quarter. There’s always something happening for your enjoyment and enrichment at your favourite club. So enjoy your read and we’ll see you at the club!

    Yours faithfully,

    Have you heard of the WOW! signal? An American astronomer named Jerry R. Ehman detected a narrowband radio signal that was quite strong, back in 15 August 1977. At the time, he was working at the radio telescope popularly known as Big Ear, where he was on the SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) project. The Wow! signal became quite popular in the media then and also on popular social media platforms today.

    The signal is believed to have originated near the Chi Sagittarii star group, northwest of the globular cluster of M55 in the constellation Sagittarius. If you don’t believe in the existence of extra-terrestrial beings, popularly known as

    aliens, the WOW! signal will definitely give you food for thought.

    The signal didn’t last for long; only 72 seconds. This means that the window was quite small and very difficult to detect. Big Ear
