Captain Space Chicken; Reporting for Duty

On Sept. 5 California high school students launched a rubber chicken dubbed Camilla into space. It was a trial run in honour of the 35th anniversary of Voyager 1. Camilla wore headphones to draw attention to the Golden iPod app they plan to attach to a satellite they are building. The app will be on board this satellite, with plans for a 2013 launch. Voyager 1 was equipped with a ‘Golden Record’, designed to send information into the universe. The Golden iPod will do the same thing.
