Thought for the month

“Science is a method to keep yourself from kidding yourself”.

Edwin Land, scientist and inventor (1909-91)

NASA will get paid about $128,000 for filming some skin care products on the International Space Station. The footage will be used by a cosmetics company for promotions and advertisements. My initial reaction was somewhat negative ... because you’re earth it? ... in space no one can hear your cream? ... Houston we’ve had a perfume? However on reflection I feel more sanguine, as well as generating income, it further engages NASA and space exploration with the wider public and is a bit of fun. The later perhaps being in short supply at the moment.
