Due to recent concerns regarding gaseous emissions from our bovine friends, plans have been announced by NASA to jettison the worlds cattle into space.

A spokesman for NASA, Isaac Hunt commented:

"Tree huggers around the world, especially the veggie brigade, keep belly aching on about the catastrophic damage being caused by the worlds cattle, problems like over-grazing, shitting and farting everywhere etc.

In response to this, NASA has commissioned a field study to look into the possibility of putting the worlds cattle into orbit.

They would basically live in orbiting bio-modules which would sustain them, and their gaseous emissions would help power the modules themselves.

Any cattle needed for consumption would be ejected from the modules on a re-entry path to the Earth's surface.

Obviously they may be slightly char-grilled, but a lot of people like cows that way anyway!"

We await developments
