Not an experiment I really wanted to hear about. Wonder what they'll find in his space pampers. Sure, they may be odor free, but what kind of little beasties may be lurking in them....

The astronauts released some mini satellites

Thanks for this little pearl of wisdom. I too would be interested to know if they happen to find ET harboring in this guy's undies. Who knows, if they then pass his undies onto a fortune teller, in addition to understanding what the astronaut has been eating over the last month, the fortune teller may be able to give a reading based on the skid marks.

Undies! An Australian obviously translated this story.

Those undies will be perfect for the otaku/hikkikomori sub-culture. "When you just can't bother to bathe..."

"no longer needed cargo ships that are sent plunging in flames through the atmosphere"

Dad? Is this a shooting star?

No, my son. Undies re-entering earth.

Since when is Associated Press a Japanese news agency?

To whom it may concern at the Japanese Space Agency:

Congratulations on your recent investigations with your J-Wear technology. While I welcome fellow investigators in a field of research of which I consider myself a pioneer, I regret to inform you that these investigations are modest by comparison to my own research. I have personally tested my own "formulation" on a pair of underwear in my possession that have been "in use" since January 20, 2001. The experiment endured for a period of eight years, during which time I can verify in the public record that only a small minority of the american public had any real objections to the odor. This experiment was concluded January 20, 2009, and I am in the process of publishing my findings.

With much enthusiasm, -Phil
