Lush Green Grass Discovered on Pluto

April 1, 2014 (Boston, MA)-- Just as cloud hosting company Media3 has been saying, the grass really is greener in the cloud. Two years into their mission to bulk up Pluto in cooperation with Sir Richard Branson/Virgin Atlantic, project engineers recently discovered that an approximate 26% of the former planet is covered in lush green perfectly manicured grass.

In April 2011, Sir Richard Branson announced his purchase of the former planet Pluto for an undisclosed sum and his intention to have it reinstated as a planet by bulking it up. Soon after the announcement, Virgin approached Media3 with the concept of hosting "above the clouds" and lengthy talks ensued, culminating in several previous joint initiative announcements.

With golf being a growing market for Virgin Atlantic which recently started flying to an expanding number of golf destinations from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow, a Pluto golf expedition may not be far in the future.

"We're delighted to work with a true pioneer like Mr. Branson and to do what we can to help increase the planetary mass of Pluto" said Media3 CEO Bob Hayes. "I truly hope we can put it back to it's rightful status as a recognized planet."

The discovery of the perfectly manicured grass has scientists and engineers baffled and the time needed to study it will likely cause some delays in construction. The datacenter, expected to provide Media3 with enough capacity for the next millenium, is now expected to be fully operational by April 2015, just ahead of Pluto's reinstatement hearing before the International Astronomical Union (IAU).
