    Manx cats are more spaceworthy -- no silly tail needed for their suits.

    It's difficult to convince a cat to float.

    It's easier if you first teach them Transcendental Meditation.

    Coincidentally, "Om" in the Manx language turns out to be "Om".

    Lucky I paid by credit card so they refunded. I looked at that and the 30 min warp drive route and since both were equally open for booking, I took the 30 minute ride. Mars here I come! Soon.

    Alabama hick dictates how our cash is to be wasted.

    I've never liked the Europa Clipper concept. It's the typical NASA approach of pussyfooting around, reminiscent of the Mars rover program.
