image for NASA Announces GO BLUE Initiative
A resident wearing -- well, what else? -- blue, of course!

If you think this has to do with the University of Michigan, think again. No way!

Instead, the GO BLUE Initiative involves NASA's doing just about everything possible to foster the natural "blueness" of a very special planet, HD 189733b. (Read about this planet in the article,
"NASA Hubble Finds a True Blue Planet," in wundergroundnews.com.)

Gail Farrelly, a science and technology reporter at TheSpoof.com, has used secret SpoofSpaceTechnology (don't ask!) to investigate this "true-blue" planet and what NASA's GO BLUE initiative entails.

This is a planet like no other, Farrelly reports. Okay, it's naturally blue, but NASA is helping it along. Sort of like providing a little Clairol, y'know?

Broadcasted over the entire planet, 24/7 in an unending loop, are a number of musical selections. Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" dominates. But a number of hits sung by a variety of musical artists are also part of the program. For example: "Blue Velvet" by Bobby Vinton; "Singing the Blues" by Guy Mitchell; and "Blue Moon" by The Marcels.

Residents of the planet are encouraged to get with the program. NASA is supplying them with free blue clothing. That includes blue suede shoes.

And once air transport is approved for travel from earth to Planet HD 189733b, Jet Blue will be the carrier of choice. Natch!

It seems that NASA believes what John Ruskin once said, "Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight."

You betcha!

Make Gail Farrelly's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
