...that NASA continues to send monkeys into space.
"It will be a gentle pull with my hand, and if that doesn't work, I have some forceps. I'll give it slightly more than a gentle pull. If that doesn't work, I saw it off with a hack saw." - Astronaut Steve Robinson, re. the repair of loose material on the Space Shuttle Discovery's heat shield.
Does anyone else find this as amusing as we, the Staff, do? Either NASA is dumbing itself down to make itself easily understandable to the average American chimp, or there really are just a bunch of apes in suits up there.
