Joe Latrell, president of Beyond-Earth Enterprises, specializing in commercial sub-orbital rocket launching, said last Friday’s launch of a 12-foot suborbital rocket carrying the cremated remains of a rabbit, poetry and hair samples returned to Earth without being abducted over the desert town known for its alleged crash of an alien ship in 1947.

We sent out a radio signal saying, ‘This is the launch time for this rocket and if any aliens were nearby, come and get it,’ Latrell told the Roswell Daily Record. He said he’s not convinced aliens exist was merely being entrepreneurial.

“The best Christmas present we could have would be a nice, flat surface,” as it will involve “a lot of walking,” adventurer Kevin Biggar told New Zealand’s National Radio Friday as the pair prepared to reach the pole by early January. Biggar and Jamie Fitzgerald were on their 40th day of walking, dragging sleds behind them on frequently rough terrain, as they trek to the world’s most inhospitable southern point.

After a short celebration, they plan to turn around and head back to the Antarctic coast, to complete their journey of more than 2,400 kilometers (1,500 miles).
