XKCD vs. Voyager 1

Fri ,22/03/2013

and now the more cynical XKCD take on my previous Voyager 1 post… 🙂

So far Voyager 1 has 'left the Solar System' by passing through the termination shock three times, the heliopause twice, and once each through the heliosheath, heliosphere, heliodrome, auroral discontinuity, Heaviside layer, trans-Neptunian panic zone, magnetogap, US Census Bureau Solar System statistical boundary, Kuiper gauntlet, Oort void, and crystal sphere holding the fixed stars.


It’s easy to forget…

that space station is still up there – but someday, man may pull his head out of his Cliff Clavin and get back on track….!

If Buzz Aldrin’s fist wasn’t proof enough – and for me it surely would have been 🙂 – this video should finally put to rest ALL those stupid conspiracy theories!

Well DONE, SG Collins – my hat is off to you! And I suspect Mr. Kubrick would be equally in your debt, were he still with us….

While I’m hesitant to endorse a ‘burn’ on NASA – here this is really just as much a burn on the moon-landing deniers. As was Buzz Aldrin’s fist!

Ok, so Spirit and Opportunity are pretty awesome. And Kepler. And New Horizons, Cassini, Curiosity, TiME, and Project M. But c'mon, if the Earth were a basketball, in 40 years no human's been more than half an inch from the surface.

Buzz Aldrin kicks a**….

So not only did Buzz Aldrin have an Atari game named after him*, he kicks a** and takes names, too!
