A Bright Moon Impact
19 hours ago
As Nasa's LCROSS spacecraft travelled towards the moon at more than 9,000 kilometres per hour on Friday afternoon, it tweeted in the whale's words: "And what's this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round ... it needs a big wide sounding name like 'Ow', 'Ownge', 'Round', 'Ground'! ... That's it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it'll be friends with me?"I felt that Adams' later books in the series were too grim and dark to really be funny, so I'm hoping that "And Another Thing ..." puts a funny (yet thought provoking) period on the series.
