SACRED

SACRED was a Cubesat built by the Student Satellite Program of the University of Arizona. It was the product of the work of about 50 students, ranging from college freshmen to Ph. D. students, over the course of several years. It was launched, after being postponed several times, on board a Dnepr on July 26, 2006. The launch was a failure.

Famous quotes containing the word sacred:

    O native country, repossessed by thee!
    For, rather than I’ll to the West return,
    I’ll beg of thee first here to have mine urn.
    Weak I am grown, and must in short time fall;
    Give thou my sacred relics burial.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    Every Morne from hence,
    A brisk Cherub something sips,
    Whose sacred influence
    Adds sweetnes to his sweetest lips,
    Then to his Musick, and his song
    Tastes of his breakefast all day long.
    Richard Crashaw (1613?–1649)

    For them it’s out-of-date and outmoded to perform miracles; teaching the people is too like hard work, interpreting the holy scriptures is for schoolmen and praying is a waste of time; to shed tears is weak and womanish, to be needy is degrading; to suffer defeat is a disgrace and hardly fitting for one who scarcely permits the greatest of kings to kiss the toes of his sacred feet; and finally, death is an unattractive prospect, and dying on a cross would be an ignominious end.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
