Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

Video recordings of the Apollo 11 Moon landing sold last month for $1.82 million. The tapes were part of a purchase made 43 years ago by a NASA intern for $217.77 from a government surplus auction.
