Hello golfers

Who ever said Canada is not contributing in the space conquest?...

If a company is willing to spend his money flying a golf ball could be they 
will be willing to donate if they can have their logo on an amateur satellite?

"Tyurin´s golf shot was part of a demonstration for a commercially 
sponsored endeavor between a Canadian golf company and the Russian 
Federal Space Agency. The golf club and three balls were flown to the 
station on recent Russian Progress cargo ships. NASA's safety analysis 
showed that the balls will re-enter the Earth´s atmosphere and burn up 
in about three days. The balls weigh only about as much as three 
one-dollar bills."

The medium is the message...The content is the audience...;)
