What does SOS mean?

answer SOS is a distress signal that is used to ask for help. Associating the abbreviation with Save our Souls, Save our Ship, or Survivors on Shore is just an assumption regarding the word SOS. Sending an SOS code is asking the signal receiver to send help. An interesting fact about SOS is that it is a palindrome and an ambigram which means that it can be read the same from whichever side you look at it, making it easy for the onlookers to decode the signal.
