Date: Tue, 4 Feb 97 08:00:50 -0400 Subject: CNN on spaceball and Reno Hi all, I was watching CNN this morning and saw two interesting clips: 1. Apparently, the spaceball was a fuel pod that fell off a launch vehicle (sorry, I didn't catch what kind) which was launching a satellite whose purpose is to monitor space junk. Is that what they call irony? 2. Forgive me if I didn't hear this one correctly, but it seemed they said that Reno, NV is in financial problems and one method they may use to help out is to stage a "mock alien invasion complete with stirring soundtrack, explosions, and a bombastic alien intent on taking over the world." A bombastic grey--isn't that an oxymoron? james James R. Graham Senior Assoc. Scientist Genetics Institute Research Computing firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com V:617.503.7031
