Just a few hours after the astronauts finished an EVA! Big flare for this late after solar max. Around 0900 gmt this morning. This is one reason I wouldn't want to be an astronaut. I hope they were in a good shielded area.

Astronauts started their EVA about 1753 GMT the day before. It seems to have been a long EVA considering all the tasks they tried to do. I don't know when they finished, but this was cutting it a little close.

I guess "an astronaut's life is not a happy one" (to use a Gilbert & Sullivan song loosely).

And they talk about space travel as if it were a piece of cake for humans.
