100 Dollar Question


Towel Day

Few authors are more adored than Douglas Adams, who was hands-down the funniest writer in science fiction history. (Don’t even try to argue this point. You know it to be true.) Though his unexpected death on May 11, 2001 came as a tragic shock, the years since have cemented his legacy as an apex humorist, committed activist, and an all-around awesome dude.

Case in point: Towel Day. Since 2001, Adams fans have commemorated his life and work by carrying towels with them every May 25, in reference to some key advice dispensed in chapter three of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But this year’s celebration is particularly special, because the holiday has now officially made it into outer space—a development that surely would have delighted Adams.

In a clip released by the European Space Agency this morning, Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti reads the relevant passage of the Guide while casually floating around in the International Space Station. Needless to say, the reading is a must-watch for Adams fans.
