    Fraser. There's another way to collect particles, too. The background count of cosmic rays, which varies by latitude and altitude, too, is about a dozen hits per minute. As they splash through your cytoplasm, tiny quantities of subatomic particles flash in the dark....Ahh!, holes in the head we like....reminds me of sombody famous taking up the airways these days. ...pete

    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!
