Morse code - a code by which exchange messages ships or planes. Samuel Morse invented it. The most famous source in the system is a «SOS», consisting of three dots, three dashes and three more dots. This is a universal distress, and was used at sea so often that people sincerely believed that this acronym - short phrases, such as "Save Our Ship" (eng. Save our ship) or "Save Our Souls" (eng. Save our souls). In fact, everything a little differently: «SOS» on anything not based and does not have any sense at all.
Distress signal «SOS» has become because of its simplicity - it is surprisingly easy to remember. Incidentally, this is not the first code that people use for the same purpose. Please use the signal «CQD» - in 1904 Guglielmo Marconi introduced this signal on the basis of the phrase «come quick danger» (eng. "Coming soon, the danger"). In 1908 he replaced the «CQD» come «SOS», but it took him years to become generally accepted.
