Far out space nuts

Around the time two big balls plopped on Razdolnoye, Kazakhstan, a pair of balls, one larger than the other, were seen dangling in the sky above Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The balls remained in the air for approximately half an hour, then floated off toward the south east. At no time did the globes descend low enough for locals to fondle or attack them. Observers of the balls describe them as having an “extra-ordinary nature”, jealous skeptics who didn’t actually see them insist the balls are mundane (how would they know?).

In other space news, 45 years after the legendary Zambian Space Program failed to launch, Africa may once again be reaching for the stars:
Africans must travel to the moon to investigate what developed nations have been doing in outer space, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said Saturday.

“The Americans have gone to the moon. And the Russians. The Chinese and Indians will go there soon. Africans are the only ones who are stuck here,” Museveni said, addressing a meeting of the Uganda Law Society in Entebbe.

“We must also go there and say: ‘What are you people doing up here?’”
I've wondered the same thing myself. Ad astra afronauts!

  1. Mr Van Carter - here's some breaking African news for you - apparently President Bongo is dead (http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25602964-23109,00.html)

  2. That's sad. I read last week that Bongo was sick, his people must have been downplaying the severity of his condition.

    I first heard of Bongo from Moldbug. I wonder how he is taking the news?
