Does the ISS have an e-mail address ?

Do the occupants have a digital camera so they can e-mail pictures back home? :-?

If they do, have incoming e-mail, which anti-virus software do they use?

The occupants have an emailaddress, but the problem is that, with the earth orbit of the station, it continuously switches between

Naut_o_box @ ISS.ru
Naut_o_box @ ISS.ch
Naut_o_box @ ISS.sp
Naut_o_box @ ISS.rw
Naut_o_box @ ISS.jp

etcetc according to which country it is flying over.

Gah! How barbaric! Why not just have a single remote server they can log into from orbit regardless of whatever country they're over?

Because that would be logical (and according to the working principles of the internet) but not suited for a post that was meant as a joke :)

Serious post:

They have some sort of standard internet connection though: the astronauts can videotalk with a laptop, and they type messages to family as well, i thought in the form of mails. As the laptop is not connected to other computer systems of the ISS, virus scannig isn't of extreme importance.

Nice quote from ISS astronaut Frank De Winne:

"Typing on the laptop was a strange experience, as the minimal force I put on the keys when typing a letter caused me to slowly "lift off" while typing texts. I quickly learned to put my feet underneath something to stay in place"

So they don't use a Hotmail account or pop up on MSN then :P

This reminds me of when they first tried to take a picture of the Earth from space.




The shot was ruined










Somebody moved #-o :D
