Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. (SatireWire.com) – NASA today said it launched a $952 million satellite this morning “just for the hell of it.”
“Oh, what the fuck,” said NASA Project Manager James Arnaut, recalling his final words before hitting the launch button.
The TRW-built satellite, carried on board a Delta II rocket, entered a sun-synchronous orbit 19 minutes later, “maybe, we’re not sure, and we don’t care,” Arnaut said.
Added NASA satellite systems director Francis Cormley: “Vrrrroooooommmmm!!!!“
