Brief Movie Review: Kung Fu Panda

What can I say? It's really good family fare. Animation? Art Direction? Story? All really good! I enjoyed it a lot. So did the wife. And, if the laughter of children is any indication, so did the audience. It's colorful, clever and fun. Take the kids!

Picture from CUTE-1.7

Click below for a color picture relayed back to earth from the CUTE-1.7 satellite. It is my understanding that CUTE is only capable of sending this kind of data back under command from its ground station in Japan, so I won't be receiving these myself, but I'm fairly impressed. The camera on board is essentially a CMOS cell-phone camera, so this is basically a snapshot from an orbiting cell phone.
