Estamos en Camino a Marte

Hoy después de una semana exhaustiva de trabajo (verano de maestría, trabajo y trabajo extra) despierto con la sorpresa de que el lanzamiento del Phoenix que mencioné en este post anterior ya se ha realizado hace 9 horas, eso me da mucho gusto y la noticia en mi correo dice lo siguiente:

Dear Fellow Mars Explorer,

Phoenix launched today -- we are on our way to Mars!
Do you know who's going to the Red Planet along with you?

In addition to your name and more than a quarter million of your fellow inhabitants of Earth, the Phoenix DVD carries Visions of Mars: The First Martian Library.Traveling with you on the disk is a treasure trove of literature and art: from science fiction classics from Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, and Kim Stanley Robinson; to literary classics by Voltaire and Jonathan Swift; to Orson Welles' radio retelling of "The War of the Worlds"; to a special audio recording of Carl Sagan delivering a message to the future Martians.

"Attention Astronauts: Take This With You."

When the first human explorers set foot on Mars and discover our disk, mounted to the deck of the Phoenix spacecraft, they will see a special note "Attention Astronauts: Take This With You." When they decode the data on the disk and unlock its secrets, they will receive a wealth of information about how Mars was seen by 20th and 21st century Earth. This disk is a very special message to the future from Earth, created by the members of The Planetary Society.

Together, our presence will be known in the universe, as we write another chapter in the great story of space exploration.We will land near Mars’ north pole in May 2008. We hope you continue the journey of exploration with us.

El Phoenix llegará a marte en 295 días aproximandamente y como programa de estímulo a la humanidad y recabaron nombres para que sean transportados al igual que el STARDUST. Esta ves, mi nombre y el de muchos seres queridos va en el DVD de esa misión, mi certificado de participación en la exploración espacial, se encuentra en está Página de la NASA, posteriormente se podrá monitorear el status de viaje; por ahora solo podemos ver el Count Down del aterrizaje del Phoenix, que algo curioso en el logotipo de esta Misión, es el gran parecido al logotipo de Firefox.

Sí está medio grueso ese intento de homeostasis que hace el ser humano. Igual y me voy a "Calaveris" a vivir.

Pd: "Calaveris" es un término que hace alusión a una expresión coloquial mayormente utilizada en el noreste de México: Mortis Calaveris. De esta manera el comentario, al hilvanarse con el anterior, pretende tener un toque "jocoso".

Howdy. I'm wondering if you would be interested in doing a website link swap? I see your blog: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=35192460&postID=5334807259030221018 and my blog are centered around the same subject matter. I'd really like to
swap links or perhaps guest author a post for you. Here is my personal email: tamreardon@gawab.
com. You should contact me if you're even slightly interested. Appreciate it.

Hi just stumbled upon your blog via Yahoo after I typed in, "Blogger: MoY" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I'm happy I found it simply because your content is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if I collect some information from
here and I will of course credit you as the reference. Thanks for your time.

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .

net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been
using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Howdy! I am about to start my own blog and was wondering if you know where the best place to
purchase a blog url is? I'm not even sure if that's what its known as?
(I'm new to this) I'm referring to "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=35192460&postID=5334807259030221018".
How do I go about obtaining one of these for the website
I'm creating? Thanks
