"Led Zeppelin are notoriously hesitant to allow their music to be licensed for commercial purposes. Knowing this, Richard Linklater filmed a plea by actor Jack Black in front of 1,000 screaming fans, imploring the band to let the production use the "Immigrant Song" in the movie. The plea worked and the filmed request is included on the DVD."

The ISEE-3 is coming home. And if Dennis Wingo and Keith Cowing have their way, it’ll return to find a warm welcome and a new mission. That is, if they can get it working again. The International Sun/Earth Explorer 3 probe has been in space nearly as long as the Voyager probes now departing the solar system. It launched in 1978 to study the interaction between the Earth’s magnetic fields and solar winds. It became the first space mission to encounter a comet in 1985 when it flew by the Giacobini-Zinner comet, and in 1986 it flew through the tail of Halley’s Comet. The spacecraft then settled into a heliocentric orbit roughly in line with Earth’s, and began collecting solar and cosmic-ray data until its communications equipment was decommissioned in 1999.
Wingo and Cowing, the masterminds of the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project, are pushing for the ISEE-3 Reboot Project, an attempt to crowdsource the capture and repurposing of the spacecraft as a new orbiting classroom and public science laboratory.
