Thought for the month

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” Maire Curie, Scientist (1867-1934).

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.
