Late yesterday afternoon the Fusspot and the Chair Stealer/Duvet Denier walked along to the Carter Observatory, a couple of hundred metres away in the Botanical Gardens to watch the live streaming of the Mars Landing.
They were fascinated by the number of blue-clad NASA staffers, presumably all with PhDs in astrophysics, sitting riveted in front of their computers busily counting down and came home saying that it is no surprise that NASA costs so much.
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. It is a truly wondrous paradox that slavekind can mount such an amazing space programme but still can’t make a hearing aid (at a reasonable price) that doesn’t whistle……..or for that matter ensure peace in the Middle East.
