Only two of the above words are capitalized because they are (punctuation lacking) acronyms.  The other one is capitalized to show how excited I am about the first two being used in conjunction and because that’s how Lana says it.  Khal Shariff, CEO of Project Whitecard Inc., has put together a Kickstarter page for Astronaut: Moon, Mars & Beyond, the official NASA MMO.  And, despite the nigh unforgivable lack of an Oxford comma in its title, the project looks pretty dang legit.

If you’re unfamiliar with how Kickstarter works, it’s actually pretty simple.  Creators solicit donations to fund their project and offer tiered rewards in exchange for monetary support.  Check out the Kickstarter page for this project here to see what I mean.  And yes, Khal Shariff, 24 of your Earthling dollars does indeed sound like “the sweet spot”.

What do you guys think?  Will you soon be LFG on Mars?
