No, this time I'm not trying to be witty with my title. Really imagine a banana over the Texas skyline both day and night. Hilarious and hopefully someday true. Why do they want to do this? I'm not really sure yet, but then again, why did scientists want to give elephants LSD...twice.
The website states, "Geostationary banana over Texas is an art intervention that places a giant banana over the Texas sky. The object will float between the high atmosphere and Earth's low orbit, being visible only from the state of Texas and its surroundings. From the ground the banana will be clearly recognizable day and night and will be up for one month."
So pretty much it's a giant (300 meters in length) banana blimp.
Launch date is expected to be around August 2008...anyone want to roadtrip?
