Look there, in the Texas sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's ... a banana?
In an art installation sure to launch a thousand UFO
conspiracies, Montreal artist César Saez plans to send a
1,000-foot helium blimp in the shape of a banana into low Earth orbit
over the Lone Star State.
I saw the title of the article and just couldn't pass it up. It is
real. I don't like the politics, or the fact that it is being done
with, even, Canadian tax payer money. I can just see a South Park like
Canadian pumping up a 1000 foot long banana with a bicycle pump and
cursing the president of a country he does not pay taxes in.
