It takes 9.39 pounds of rocket fuel to propel one pound of bovine into space. Cow 705 has long dreamed of being the first cow to actual go over the moon, however, when you weigh in around 1500 pounds that can be a daunting task! TAU’s Cow Space Agency has been looking into alternative energy sources, given the price of rocket fuel, to take 705 on her legendary journey and has hit upon the perfect source of cow energy – methane! Not only is it lighter than liquid fuel, there’s the added bonus of in-flight refueling possibilities! So if you happen to feel like the cows are putting out more manure than usual lately when the wind blows from TAU, you can thank the aerospace ambitions of this TAU Animal of the Week!
