corrected morse code for SOS (see chart)
'''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, it replaced the older "CQD". While commonly believed to stand for "Save Our Souls" or "Save Our Ship", it does not; the sequence was chosen for its ease of use and recognizability.[http://www.boatsafe.com/nauticalknowhow/060199tip6.htm]
