I was best thinking, I guess that was the idea behind the question, in
pop/rock/anyothergenrebestbondedtopresent type of music as the cost would
be similar to an orchestra piece as the one with the images I saw.
Still I think you are deeply right on the ulterior reflexion about the
porpoise and media for popularization. However I may say its the beauty of
the images itself what pushed me to desire to continue funding NASA and
even if unconsciously that might also be a good stimulus for asking your
self about the science behind the images, those explosions seen in short
frame turning into a continuous current of heat responsible of life of a
whole planet for instance. Anycase I would consider "criminal" to keep such
a beautiful thing for oneself.
Always nice to read you Guille. Pirate love waves may lead you on your way
for the day. Take care brother.
