Gregory Green is building a sputnik satellite. Like his other work with bombs and rockets, it's art. When I last saw him he was trying to find half million dollars to put it into orbit.

When I was a boy I built a rocket of the same design using styrofoam and wooden dowels. When I launched it almost went out of sight. It never occurred to me why anyone would want to launch a rocket father than they could see it, but then I didn't show much promise as a conceptual artist when I was younger.
