Balloon set to Tether Romanian Space Probe

From twitter this morning I read how scientists had unearthed strands of twine that were carbon dated at 34,000 years, so it ought not be any surprise that we will continue to thread our way through space and time just as ARCA seems to have cottoned onto.

"The Indian moon probe has failed; the future of the US space programme is in question; low-earth orbit is littered with junk. But at a time when there are so many reasons to say "no" to space, Romania is saying "da!" (that's yes in Romanian). The brave members of the non-profit Aeronautics and Cosmonautics Romanian Association (ARCA) are determined to get to the moon in a balloon."

The video, is a computer generated animation of the Helen rocket flight in the Google Lunar XPrize competition and is set to launch a balloon with a rocket hanging from the bottom, next month.

I wait with bated breath believing what they are doing reveals us a profound serendipitous event.
