(that's me and my Ant Kat) Just like the most fashionable cat in the world, a Mancat wears Pink!
Mom and the MIG say thanks for the anniversaree wishes last week!
It THUNDERED here this morning. Isn't that crazy? It is drizzly and the weather beans say 6" or more of the cold white stuff tomorrow. ALL AT ONCE! That's even more crazy than thunder in February! Our gramma was sposed to come tomorrow but she'll be staying home now.
Tomorrow, February 4, 2008, at 00:00 GMT (7:00 p.m. New York /EST), NASA will beam the Beatles’ “Across The Universe” to the star Polaris, 431 light years away (that’s 431 years travel at the speed of light before our all-time favorite Beatles song reaches the 2.5 quadrillion miles away star). This is being done to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the song, the 45th anniversary of NASA’s Deep Space Network, an international network of antennas that supports missions to explore the universe, and the 50th anniversary of NASA.
Across the Universe
NASA has invited people around the world to play “Across the Universe” on their audio systems at the same time NASA beams its mp3 version into outer space. The idea was hatched by Beatles’ historian Martin Lewis, who encourages all Beatles fans to play the track as it is being beamed to the distant star. Additionally, this date will be known as “Across the Universe Day”. The event marks the first time a radio song has been beamed into deep space.
Join the celebration!
