I am the blue dot…
I watched a television program the other day called “Man Lab” with James May, the thinking mans car jockey from Top Gear and he, and his scientist mates sent the ashes of a cat and a budgie up in weather balloons to be scattered to the 4 winds. They thought that they would get to cloud level but they got to about where that last Google Earth shot of New York was… in fact they were almost into the stratosphere before they burst 35 000 feet in the air…amazing 🙂 Much like being able to put a blue dot on a single man from space…the world is a marvellous thing…(I wonder if the satellite that Google Earth uses will get clogged up with budgie dust? 😉 )
One of my fave places for a long weekend! I miss popping down there from Massachusetts!
