Message To Mars


Hey! Want to Send your name and a message to Mars? Anybody on planet Earth is welcome to participate!

From RELEASE: 13-125 --

WASHINGTON -- NASA is inviting members of the public to submit their names and a personal message online for a DVD to be carried aboard a spacecraft that will study the Martian upper atmosphere. Scheduled for launch in November, the DVD will be in NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft. The DVD is part of the mission's Going to Mars Campaign coordinated at the University of Colorado at Boulder's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics.

The DVD will carry every name submitted. The public also is encouraged to submit a message in the form of a three-line poem, or haiku. However, only three haikus will be selected. The deadline for all submissions is July 1. An online public vote to determine the top three messages to be placed on the DVD will begin July 15.

Rush Limbaugh had his shorts all in a twist yesterday morning regarding the new judgment that makes it legal for a fifteen-year-old to go into a pharmacy and buy, without prescription, the so-called 'morning after' pill; this being medication to prevent pregnancy when ingested within a specific time after coitus.

And I wondered what business it is of Rush Limbaugh and why he should believe himself to be a a judge of what a fifteen year old girl, unrelated to him, Can or cannot do to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

It seems to me that Rush Limbaugh is overly concerned with something that is absolutely none of his business. But sticking their noses where they do not belong, of course, is what a great many dedicated Christians do best.

On this day, May 2, in 2011, Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, was killed by U.S. forces during a raid on his compound hideout in Pakistan. The notorious, 54-year-old leader of Al Qaeda, the terrorist network of Islamic extremists, had been the target of a nearly decade-long international manhunt.

Anyway, that's what we were told, via the mass media, by U.S. President Barach Obama.
