This is a link my father sent me, and I wanted to share it here, as it is quite interesting.

On my first trip to DC, I barely made it past the (Old) Space and Science Museum. I could have spent the entire day just looking at and comparing the Soyuz and Gemini (?) spacecraft, hanging overhead, side-by-side.

That was in the 70's. Who could have imagined then that anything comparable to the ISS would ever exist.

Thank you for this video Steve!

2 years ago I was guiding some student at the Air space museum in Washington DC and with surprising jackpot oddity found out that Buz Aldrin along with two other astronauts signing their books event. I got Buz Aldrin book with his signature but could not shake hands with him because I came at the end of the event.

It's all about the timing! Always the timing.

A remarkable day for you (and the students, too).

Yes timing is everything. I was looking at the scene maybe for 3-4 minutes that people actually shaking hands with them getting their signatures some lucky ones managed to have their pictures taken from the crowds. I took maybe 10 photos of the event.

If women didn't have this dang thing about washing their hair so often it wouldn't be so much of a problem.


Hey, now, I resemble that remark. :)

Sometime not having a bath for a long time really works for your own physiology development. Well according to this ISS example Nasa physicians are seemingly on this side too. ;)

In late 80s or early 90s actually MIR station had some kind of shower system that I very briefly saw from russian tv, but seemingly soon after they uninstalled that.

The European cargo spacecraft ATV is the most complex vehicle ever built to re-supply an International Space Station.



Er ...... I thought we only had one? Who's been building more when we weren't looking?

ESA. ATV Johannes Kepler is in space, ATV Edoardo Amaldi is almost built and ATV Albert Einstein is next. Four of them have been planned.

Well china has 3 trillion dollars to play with they are almost launching their first space station:

But my guess is its main mechanical structure is all russian and most electronics and computers are all american. It pretty much looks like MIR twin brother from outside.

NASA have just released some stunning pictures of the ISS and the docked STS Endeavour over on:

The International Space Station and the Docked Space Shuttle Endeavour


Who's guessing there's going to be a few new desktop images?...

Spectacular stuff!

Very nice pictures but still looks like an erector set. Maybe some butt kicking for the designers is in order. Here is what we need to do next.
