Sources at NASA indicate that the return of Atlantis to Earth is delayed due to reasons other than the weather as reported widely in the Media.
In an exclusive interview to Whines Now TV, the NASA chief Triple H confirmed that the Shuttle can land anytime, but has been delayed due to personal reasons. Whines Now will replay this interiew at least 200 times over the next 2 days, so you can catch it on the air anytime.
He said "We had already cleared the location and time for landing. However, we had an unique request from Sunita. She indicated that she would like to watch "Sivaji - The boss" movie aboard the Atlantis. We have since contacted Mr.Shankar, who has sent us a DVD of the movie."
He continued, "We have stopped vital communication with the Space Shuttle and started relaying the movie now. Most of us here at NASA are also watching it on our Big Screens. Its better than Spiderman 3 or Fab Four, the movies we have been watching the last 3 days here. We are so impressed that we have now asked for a copy of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom too"
When our reporters contacted Sunita, she was so engrossed in the movie and her voice came through in bits and spurts. Initially, we attributed this to our usual quality of sound, but were able to get her to speak to us clearly during the intermission. And this is what she had to say...
"It was great watching the Superstar after having to watch millions of nameless stars over the last 6 months. It is a scientific wonder that our movie stars are able to float in air with the same ease we have been doing in space. I also wish to thank all Indians who have sent me good wishes through this TV channel, though they didn't know me from garam masala 3 months back. Hey, the intermission is over and I've to get back to watching Sivaji. Catchya."
That was an exclusive report of the Atlantis return to Earth. You can catch pictures of 'Sunita watching Sivaji' in Action City at 8pm. This is DontheCat in NASA reporting for Whines Now.
I'm at Pondy for the weekend.
More about this tomorrow when I'm back in the comforts of Broadband, cos right now I'm on GPRS. BSNL is good but then its still 64 kbps only.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U.S. involvement in Iraq, here's a sobering statistic.
There has been a monthly average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theatre of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths.
That gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.
The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 persons for the same period. That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. Capital than you are in Iraq.
Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington
