Hey, so NASA rules, right? I'm pretty sure they're the coolest "organization" ever. Please feel free to correct me with figures and facts about how "taxpayer dollars" are wasted on them, and whatever. But dick with this:

The Voyager mission consisted of the launching of 2 unmanned NASA probes, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. They were originally designed to observe Jupiter and Saturn, however the two probes were able to continue their mission, and relay information from much further into the outer solar system.

Both probes have achieved escape velocity from the solar system and will never return.

Voyager 1 is currently the farthest human-made object from Earth, having gone 16 billion kilometres, and is also travelling faster than any other man-made orbital object (17 kmph). Cool.

Ok, so everything ^^above this sentence is real. But one last thing... pretty much the greatest thing anyone has ever said aloud - is a description of a superhero named "Kid Cosmos ©". Credit goes to "Dangerous Dave" for this one.

Kid Cosmos is (fictionally), a child raised by NASA, to be a powerful ally to the U.S.A's defence force. He arrives on Earth, when the Voyager 1 probe suddenly re-enters the atmosphere, crash landing in the Pacific Ocean. The NASA recovery team go out and retrieve the "somewhat intact" vessel from the ocean, and open it up, only to find a fucking baby inside. (pow!)

If I ever turn that into a screenplay - watch out Hollywood. :)

NASA... yeah! *fist pump*
