Morning Poppers (Outer-Fucking-Space Edition)

SPACEFAGS GET IN HERE.

The Voyager satellite was launched in 1977, en route to motherfucking Saturn. For the first time in 37 years, we just remotely initiated its thrusters. What?! That fucker is 13 billion miles from the sun, beset with 1970s technology. It’s still going strong — and it takes 19 hours and 35 minutes for a Voyager signal to bounce back to earth. We’re going to lose contact with Voyager 1 within the decade and after that out first beacon won’t set upon another star for 40,000 years; by that time we’ll be the god damned high tech space aliens, invading other planets for sport, taking all of their resources, and shit. Both Voyager’s 1 and 2 are armed with ‘The Golden Record’, which is a gold plated record with 90 minutes of music, sounds from earth, and voices with 55 languages, and etchings on its surface — an advertisement of sorts for aliens who might come upon it and then use it to find us and destroy our civilization.

European markets are Yellen soft this morning and S&P futures are +4, Dow +70, Nasdaq -4. WTI is -0.4% and our yield curve is 56bps, which apparently means absolutely nothing these days.

Regal Theatres just caught a bid for $23 per share from Cineworld.

Aside from that, not much else going on this morning. It’s a bit of a snooze fest.

Here are some other headlines worthy of your attention.

HMNY -8.1% (Cinemark (CNK) announced an $8.99 monthly movie membership program )
Galectin Therapeutics announces results from Phase 2b NASH-CX trial; did not reach statistical significance for primary endpoint

      And the core samples brought back from the moon were actually taken from the backyard of Mrs. Anderson’s garden in Teaneck, NJ.

    One thing about the planet Saturn is those rings are cool as fuck, making our solar system cooler than any solar system that doesn’t have a ringed planet. Nevertheless, the rest of it sucks ass.
