We are *smart* monkeys

14 01 2005

Despite my skepticism that Huygens was going to work, it looks as if the probe has successfully landed on a “soft” surface and continues its transmissions. I gotta say I am in awe.

“01.14.05 (10:15 a.m. ET) – Radio telescopes on Earth confirm that the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) Huygens probe has landed on the surface of Titan. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has turned its antenna to Earth and will relay the data received from the probe over the next few hours to NASA’s Deep Space Network. It takes one hour and 7 minutes for the signal to travel from Cassini to Earth. The European Space Agency will get the first look at that data at approximately 11:30 a.m. EST.”

Yes, smart monkeys, but not all that smart. I have often told my christian friends that if they do not believe they are monkeys that they should video themselves having sex and then sit down and watch.
