All in a day’s work, grandma.
FOX’s Alex Hein:
“All in a day’s work, grandma.”
At 8 am today I turned my TV to commercial, packed my bags and got ready to embark on an epic road trip into the far reaches of outer space.
No expense spared, I committed to my first remote-operated satellite, which was launched yesterday from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, smack dab in the middle of the Mojave Desert.
During the orbit it burns a large chunk of its plutonium fuel while cruising along at 17,200 miles per hour on a round-trip trip that will take about seven months.
After my monumental journey is over I’m ready to finally live a sensible life, neither smoking, drinking, fighting or even anything else that I would ever really do with a lot of free time.
My first day was, admittedly, stressful, but overall it was a total blast.
When I’m finished making three distant broadcasts a day I’ll be much more relaxed and certainly have more life to live.
Until then, I guess I’ll always be the guy who whips off a call in into a cell phone and winds up on national television.
Good luck living a non-robotic life while stuck here.
I’m Alex Hein, FOX News.
