Does Not Compute

Hmmm.... as someone who actually comes from the year 1954, I can report that that computer picture (unlike the pix of the Swedish spacehip) is a a joke. (The picture is actually an entry submitted to an image modification competition.)

Yumpin' Yiminy - there goes another one!

Those Swedes blast off again!

The scientific rocket Maxus 6 was successfully launched from Esrange today (11/22/2004). Everything proceeded as planned and the scientists are looking forward to some exciting analysis of the data.

The rocket was launched from the Swedish Space Corporation rocket base Esrange at 08.35 UT and reached 706 km which enabled 12 minutes of microgravity.
