NASA peace probe in flight trials

Today NASA announced its plans to further the cause of world peace.
"We plan on launching a galaxy quest, a star trek if you will, of the entire universe. Our goal will be to find planets with serenity and study how it is maintained." Said the director of NASA in a written press release.
"As with all great science fiction epics we will be launching the probe the day after tomorrow. This period will allow us to deal with any aeon flux issues that may arise. I'm sure that if we can cross the outer limits and make contact with E.T. type beings peace will be forthcoming. As we know life beyond the stars is absent of wars or any inkling of Armageddon. NASA expects our findings to make a deep impact and thank the public for their support as we attempt to make contact." Said the NASA director of public relations in a follow up phone call.
Public support has yet to be determined as of this writing, if clothing sales are any indication, support is high. Logan's alien wear has experienced a major run of product sold to the under 30 demographic lately, at least according to the minority report. The over thirty crowd has remained strangely silent on the issue.
"We don't know where they stand on this issue. " Said a UN official who preferred to remain nameless. "It's almost as if they didn't even exist. It's almost like a twilight zone episode in that aspect. I suppose this shows that the youth of the world are more aware of the issues facing this planet. It is indeed a planet of the apes in the cultural and biological sense of the word. With ape being a metaphor for the over thirty mindset. We sincerely hope that the older generation wakes from their zombie like sleep on these issues. It's high time for a dawn of the dead, the brain dead that is."
This philosophical opinion was echoed almost word for word with every expert this reporter interviewed.
Stay tuned to Solaris satellite radio for news of further developments as they develop.
