NASA; The Pope speaks to the "Heavens" - 21 May 2011

Youtube NASAtelevision;
Pope Benedict XVI Greets Shuttle, Station Crew (20 min video);
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81jAmb_e1pg

There are two ways to describe what happened in that video;
1. You could say NASA set up a video telecommunications link between the Vatican and the orbiting ISS. And the Pope had a conversation with the 12 astronauts on the ISS.

Or you could say it like this;

2. On the 21st day of May, in the year 2011, the Pope spoke forth to Twelve Apostles that dwell in the heavens above the firmament of the Earth. And the Twelve Apostles that dwell in the heavens spoke back to the Pope with a good message for humanity, wishing for peace on earth for all mankind. The event was witnessed by millions of people across the world.

So the Pope spoke to the Heavens, and voices of the Twelve Apostles spoke back to him from the heavens!

Ahhhh......i feel bad now Chris :( How can i make it up to you? Maybe you could do some "Bible style" quotes from the Pope's chat with the Twelve Apostles that dwell in the heavens!

... On the 21st day of May, in the year 2011, the Pope spoke forth to Twelve Apostles that dwell in the heavens above the firmament of the Earth. And the Twelve Apostles that dwell in the heavens spoke back to the Pope with a good message for humanity, wishing for peace on earth for all mankind. The event was witnessed by millions of people across the world. ...


... And there happened to be twelve up there? Do Dextre and Canadarm and the other robots up there count?

Good heavens! Perhaps that American rapturous pastor wasn't too far off the mark...

Or... Was it all an excuse for a rapturous big party at everyone else's expense while he ran off with the goods?

Might he have got the idea from the NASA link-up?...

Well, stranger things have happened Martin. It's an interesting world we currently live in.
