Unfortunately the Earth wasn't being given an enema at the time. If it was you could find me quite easily at the spot where they inserted the hose.

My goodness, Carl Sagan does talk a lot of sentimental twaddle doesn't he.

I stayed inside that day. It was hot out and I didn't want a pic of me all sweaty floating around the internet.

No prob
The NSA has a few cameras just as powerful in orbit all the time.

Fade2black: Honest question.  How in the hell does a pic get back to earth?  900 million miles?  I mean, it's not like the satellite is hooked up to a damn phone line.


...and called it Marconi...

/magnets, etc.

Paradoxmaker: Zombalupagus: I wonder if this is for NdGT's homage to Cosmos?

And seems like as good a time as any to repost Sagan's meditations on The Pale Blue Dot.

I just have never been able to understand how Neil got to be so popular, the guy is so creepy, and just plain boring. To be fair Sagan had a creepy vibe to him also but his was a "I'm higher than fark" kind of creepyness..


Science should lay down their trowels curing cancer, and work up a less creepy, more media-friendly science popularizer, is that what you're saying?

Like Doctor Ryan Seacrest, perhaps?

Sure, Why Not???

Think about all the science press conferences you have ever seen, they usually pretty are dull and impersonal. Maybe if the scientists had a little more Ryan Seacrest and less Sheldon Cooper the info would be received better with less harrumphing from the naysayers..

Good thing I wear a hat most of the time. The glare off the bald spot might damage the camera optics.

Oh, and since I'm in MI the satellites will have to catch me on one of the three to five days a month its not cloudy.

How about "Soylent Green is naysayers"? Next you'll be suggested ants should have a vote on where I pour pesticide.

Naysayer harrumphing is like childrens' tears: Lubricant.
