Fact of the Day  


More Information  

Morse code SOS is sometimes thought to be an acronym for "Save our Ship" or "Save our Souls" in nautical terminology. Although it conveniently fits the bill, SOS was simply chosen for the memorable rhythm (in Morse code: · · · — — — · · · [source]). The "S" is three quick taps and the "O" three longer taps. Jeopardy mentioned that "SOS" was chosen over "OSO" because in a situation where the code would be needed SOS would be quicker to tap out. Correctly tapped or written, an SOS has no pauses and one letter runs right into the next for time-of-an-emergency brevity.
