    Space exploration by ... chickens?

    Well, rubber chickens, and she (her name is Camilla) even had a space suit made for her. It's a cool story: a group of high school students sent some radiation measurement equipment to about 35,000 m with a high-altitude balloon. The story is at http://science.nasa.gov/science-news...19apr_camilla/

    There is a Muppet skit here somewhere.

    "So Henson Jr. just had to do a cross-over between 'UP' and 'Chicken Run.' And this right after Celebrity Apprentice where I had Lisa Lampanelli's hand"--DELETED

    So, the queen of mean is now a lefty, with her hand deleted?

    More seriously, I really think this is cool. I'm going to make sure that my chemistry (11th grade) students learn about this. And pass it on to a few teachers.

    Camilla's parents met on the Muppet Show, at least according to this story.
