h/t Col. Chris Hadfield, who also brings us this bit of trivia. “With no gravity to compress the soft tissues in the throat, astronauts don’t snore in space.”
The astronauts onboard the ISS were able to recreate the leak in Luca Parmitano’s spacesuit, so now they know what to ship back to Earth for failure analysis.
Cool pic of a Delta IV Heavy launch on Wednesday from Vandenburg Air Force Base. Payload was an NRO satellite.
