http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44207413/ns/technology_and_science-space/#.TlBC8Kjp7AF Animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has sent a letter to space entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of rocket company SpaceX, urging him to make any SpaceX missions to Mars vegan. "We can get off on the right foot on our new biosphere by ensuring that SpaceX crafts traveling to Mars are stocked only with vegan food and that Mars' colonists commit to enjoying an animal-free diet once they've arrived," the group wrote in the Aug. 8 letter. This is why we can't get anything done around here. There's always some nutty extremist group making demands. Maybe these moonbats will save enough money eating snow peas to buy a seat on the first rocket out. I'd be willing to give them all of Mars if they'd just promise to take every last one of their ilk with them.
