'''Morse Code''' was invented by [[Samuel Morse]] in the 1840s. It looks like a bunch of dashes and dots, but in fact it is a [[language]] with its own way of expressing [[word]]s and [[punctuation]].
The most famous Morse Code sequence is "SOS", (---...---). Officially adopted as a distress call in 1908, which means it replaced the older "CQD". While commonly believed to stand for "Save Our Souls" or "Save Our Ship". It was first used in , it does not; the sinking sequence was chosen for its ease of the use and recognizability.[[Titanic]] in 1912]
