    The curiosity about this thing has been killing me for a long time. WHAT THE FUCK WAS IT DOING UP THERE??? I NEED TO KNOW!!! I mean, I know they did a bunch of general experiments about reusable vehicles and long stints in orbit, but a lot remains a complete mystery.

    I heard they were collecting samples of bacteria that exists in the earth's outer atmosphere. My cousin was on the recovery team, but we haven't heard from him in a few days.

    I have no idea if anyone will get that reference.

    Yup. Just read it a month or so ago, so it's still fresh in my head.
