NASA publishes a photo of a crashed flying saucer!!! Really!! Look: https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/genesis/multimedia/genesisrecov090804-2.html.
Well, it IS a saucer…full of hot air, no secrets! Sorry, Pinky! Part of the Genisis Mission, it came to an abrupt end. Launched on 8 August 2001, the Genesis mission was the space agency’s ambitious effort to send a spacecraft into our home star’s solar wind, gather samples, and return them to Earth. Star Farts!
–Meet 88-year-old George Baldwin, from Josh’s neck of the woods, who was a pioneering engineer for NASA’s early spacecraft. When asked of his first impressions when he started working on the newfangled spacecraft?
“They looked like a bunch of tin cans really,” he said with a laugh.
Baldwin was on a trip to Alaska when he finally saw the fruits of all his labor with the moon landing, but his reaction was tempered by the fact that “nobody in Alaska believed that (it really happened). They said it was Walt Disney.” Today, we are told, repeatedly, daily, ad nauseam, literally thousands of our everyday products and advances in technology are due to the space program. “Velcro for one thing. A lot of Velcro,” Baldwin said with a smile.
–Zach ‘No Mad Nomad’ Zabala shares a pic of an alien head that appeared in the sky…in 3D, it seems!!
–Do you have a fave soundtrack? We play a few today!!
