On another site, I got into a discussion with a friend about how sad it is that even though there were people in space constantly for almost the entire 2000-2009 time span, almost no newsmagazines or other sources mentioned it in their "Decade in Review" features.

The least I can do is sing this to the tune of Bette Midler's Wind Beneath My Wings, because I personally care very much. Here's to you, ISS Expeditions 1-22 and beyond:


Steel and Solar Wings

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
It must have been cold there in the shadows,
To never have limelight up in space
You were content to let them shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So down here others had the glory,
While you were way up there with all your strength.
Beautiful faces without names for so long.
Beautiful smiles, and quiet pain.

Did you ever know that you're our heroes,
And everything we would like to be?
And when we fly out there like eagles,
'cause of that steel and solar wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
But I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would never forget about you.

Did you ever know that you're my heroes?
And living like we wish we could be.
And soon we’ll fly up there like eagles
'cause of that steel and solar wings.

Did anyone tell you you’re our heroes?
And everything we wished we could be?
Oh, and we, we’ll be flying there like eagles,
'cause of that steel and solar wings,
'cause of that steel and solar wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, your steel and solar wings.
Oh, you, you, you, your steel and solar wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, your steel and solar wings.
