First Pope Phone Call In Space

This past Saturday Pope Benedict became the first pope to call astronauts in space. He talked to the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour along with those at the International Space Station.
From space, "I think it must be obvious to you that we all live together on this earth and how absurd it is that we fight and kill," said Benedict, speaking from the Vatican to the International Space Station, where the space shuttle Endeavour docked Wednesday during its final mission.

@Sid: in the past the Vatican Astronomers came out with a whole bunch of idiocies about aliens and planetary discoveries. Not a very reliable source in the field, I guess.

The right answer to the pope's call would have been "Sorry, your friend is not here, old man. -click-"

The Pope and his predecessors over the last few hundred years have dug astronomy and continue to fund research centers.
