Users of Niconico Douga will launch an artificial satellite from Nevada, US on September 19th. The satellite carries a movable figure of Hachune Miku (a derivative character of VOCALOID Hatsune Miku). The project involves Nojiri Housuke (the novel author of "Rocket Girls").

Social Media Satellite Development Project (SOMESTAT)

The major object of the project is to demonstrate that Hachune Miku can swing a green onion (leek) at zero gravity. Matsumoto Leiji gave a supporting message to the project.

There are few words to describe how epic this is.
It's like the sign of a dawning new age.

LOL. They really have nothing better to work on, other than launching Vocaloids into space to prove a stupid point?!

Well, it'd be amusing for sure, so I have nothing to complain about. xD

Although they could have made a better choice on the character.

Please tell me there is some other purpose to this aside from having some anime (er... vocaloid) idol in space?

I honestly don't know what to say. On one hand, I have never heard of the series, so I believe it to be famous enough for that. On the other, I honestly don't know why the hell humankind are launching this sort of stuff in space. What the hell.....
