No, literally, in space:

http://www.google.com/virgle/

Alas, I am judged unfit for Mars colony purposes:

Well, you're distressingly normal and could conceivably adjust to life as a deep space pioneer, though we recommend instead that you leave the Mars missions to the serious whack jobs who scored over 130 and instead finish year 3 of law school, tuck your toddler into bed, design Web 2.0 applications, run for Congress or do whatever other normal, healthy, middle-of-the-road thing you're currently doing with your normal, healthy, middle-of-the-road life.

Well, that's me told.

I have to admit I was moderately fooled (that is to say I sent it to someone saying WTF???) by the Virgle one. In mitigation I claim that it seems no more ludicrous to me than the other space things that Google and Virgin are doing.

I love that questionnaire (and you will be staggeringly unsurprised by my result). When I have a mo, I will try to see what happens if I answer all the whack job answers.

I saw the penguins on the news this morning but haven't seen them on any web site.

Apparently I am awesomely suited to be a Virgile pioneer. Finally! an organisation that respects engineers world class in the field of radio telescope design.
