This is pretty cool! (Linked from today's APOD (http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap030408.html) ).

Yes, it is! Especially http://science.nasa.gov/ppod/y2003/28mar_iridiumflash.htm - the picture of an Iridium flash. That must be pretty nerve-rattling in orbit.

By the way - let all the moon hoaxists this is yet another picture in which you can see that stars (So it must be faked.)

Loved the Southern skies pic. Everytime I see one of those southern hemisphere shots of the Milky Way I start drooling.

Great story. That's the kind of stuff that boosts imagination of the kids. Go up and make something.

That Don Pettit is a smart fellow. I've enjoyed reading about his "free time" experiments in microgravity, particularly his work with soap bubbles and water surface tension.

Maybe they should change the name to "Space Station Science Picture of the Month." :roll:
