So while I was browsing the MarsPhoenix webpages for my next post I was very intrigued by the link to the Steve the Cat pages. some items on the page include:
- pictures of Steve the Cat photoshopped inside a space suit
- pictures of Steve the Cat in Mission control
- Steve the Cat looking through the window on board MarsPhoenix, thinking of planting asparagus on Mars
Steve the Cat is a normal cat in many respects – he loves to eat, sleep, and chase his toy mouse. But beneath his calm, cool exterior lurks the wild soul of a frisky feline determined to redefine the cat world with his out-of-this-world perspectives on life, the Universe, and our place in it. Steve may very well be the next evolutionary step in house cats – Felis Beyondus.
Is this what the success of I Can Haz Cheeseburger has done to us? As a bit of a cat-lover I find the site very entertaining. But is this what we’re doing to get people interested in science now?!
Ah what the heck, I give in… It’s a cat! In a spacesuit!
