Barking at the Moon






North Korea put inoperative junk in the skies above us and started celebrating like there is no tomorrow:

Yoon Dong Hyun, vice director of the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces, struck a defiant note in a speech at the celebrations, vowing the country would continue developing its aerospace technology in the face of international sanctions. Efforts by other countries to block such an advance were "nothing more than a puppy barking towards the moon," he said.

Sanctions will have no effect. Perhaps someone could figure out a way to stop them from launching dangerous pieces of trash into space? Perhaps someone could deliver a fairly serious warning to stop this nonsense? I suspect the answer is, no. We will tolerate this infantile behavior and go back to ignoring the whims of this regime.

New Horizons




Did you know that we're about to have a probe arrive at Pluto? 

The New Horizons Pluto Probe woke up today and, in a conversation with a lag time of 4.5 hours, transmitted messages from about as far away as you can get in our solar system.

Amazing.
