Hat’s off to NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino who not only helped fix the Hubble Space telescope but found time to twitter from space. A first! Once it became know he was going to twitter from Orbit he quickly gathered 300,000 plus followers. No, he is no Stephen Fry, but he has a better view out his window this morning!! Although Stephen Fry is likely at the Chelsea Flower Show, which is not half bad!
So here are some of my favourite pics taken aboard Atlantis and “emailed” down to Houston. Another related Wow after the snaps.
….and last but not least you have to see this time lapse of the stars taken with a Canon DSLR at a star party in Fort Davis, Texas. William Castleman did this, and it’s nothing but stunning, or should I just say WOW! (Not bad for a Texan, and that is high praise from an Okie!)
A LAST BIG WOW FOR THE ATLANTIS ASTRONAUTS, AND NASA FOR FIXING HUBBLE!
