The Solar Sail

We Americans forget we are not the only folks in the
world sometimes. That’s why this story about an international effort to
send a space sail off in a few months really hit me. I hadn’t heard
about this in US press.

In just a few months, beneath the surface of
the Barents Sea, a Russian nuclear submarine will launch a single Volna
missile, left over from the old Soviet arsenal. Instead of a voyage of
mass destruction, this rocket will be sent on a mission of hope for the
future of humankind. It will launch on its way Cosmos 1 the
first solar sail. It will be the culmination of a historic privately
funded international space venture utilizing groundbreaking new
technology.

Whole Wheat Radio

Update: As the Internet grows there are way more changes than I can keep up with. But I have to say this great website is no more. I’ll have to find a replacement for this wonderful music they used to provide.

[Whole Wheat Radio – Home]

This has become a favorite Radio station of mine. I learned of it by chance from Bloglines I think.

It’s from Talkeetna Alaska and in addition to playing independant artist it’s website is interactive, you can give immediate feedback about artists and the music. Lots of fun!

JibJab!

I don’t post a lot here but I saw this video clip about the 2004 elections and I have to recommend it!

It’s made from the tune “This Land is Your Land” and it’s a riot.

Jib Jab, See it!
