Your Tax Dollars at Work
NASA probe close to Hollywood encounter
PASADENA, California (Reuters) - Two Hollywood stunt pilots and a space capsule full of stardust were on track for a historic mid-air encounter above the Utah desert at the end of a three-year mission to probe the origins of the solar system.
The Genesis spacecraft was expected to swing by Earth on Wednesday and jettison a capsule containing particles that may yield insights about the early formation of planets.
I don't know what they are going to think up next. Capturing space dust and then when the satellite returns to earth catch it with a hook hanging off a helicopter... uh.. their board.
Someone give these people some work to do so they quit wasting our tax dollars, goofing off in space. Sheesh!
