Golf In Space

I thought it was a bit of a laugh actually.

The Russian cosmonaut advertising some stupid Canadian golf commodity by teeing off into space.

As a photo opportunity it was rubbish. You really couldn't see what was happening and the ball just dropped off into the void. Plop.

But all the commentators are being po-faced and saying what a cheapening of the dream and I can't not agree.

I had high hopes of our space adventure.

I thought we'd be on our way to the stars in 2001+5. Instead it's all product placement and space tourism for the very, very, very rich. Bleeagh!

What mucky little apes we are.
