Not NASA? Typical JPL......

I hope I'm not making anyone angry, but oddly enough, my name initials are also JPL.

The geeky, aerospace equivalent of writing your name in the snow.

Morse code. It works, biatches.

Just the other day, while I was driving home from work, I contacted Carlos PY2XC in Sao Paulo, Brazil using Morse code on 28.025 MHz. I was running less power than a low-wattage light bulb.

Good to see that the "hire a veteran" programs are working out.

If it's in Morse, I was hoping for "By Prohias."

Except it's done for a very real reason, not just to write.

A camera on the probe can watch the imprint and if it's wrong the rover knows it's slipping and should stop.

The Apollo astronauts wrote messages in the moon soil around their landing sites, basically dragging their leg to write. They figured those messages will survive for hundreds of thousands of years, since there is nothing to disturb them. Most wrote their names, family names, and supposedly some naughty stuff. One day historians will visit the sites and find them...

I predict this is the new repeat which is green-lit every three months. We're at two now.

It's got Morse code in it. It deserves to be repeated.

One of the Martian landers had a golden DVD with my cats name on it. NASA invited kids to send in their name and it would be inscribed on it. So I sent in Sally Cat. Got a lovely wall poster from the emailed certificate. Yes, I thought about the poor kid who missed out. Then I thought 'Fark him'. She's in hospital atm after having her rear leg amputated because of skin cancer, so get well soon Sally, see you later today.
