Morse Code

January 6, 1838 Samuel Morse successfully tests his Electrical Telegraph. This simple device would become the basis for the near-light speed communication that we take for granted today.

Morse Code was developed by Samuel Morse's assistant, Alfred Vail.  Since its creation, it has embedded itself into history, finding its way into movies, music, and art.

 An SOS is a distress signal in Morse Code, and is probably the most well known symbolic transmission in Mose Code. Here is a playlist of songs referencing the S.O.S. signal.
