It’s a small world…video of Canada from space!

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

This video is shot from the International space station and shows Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick at night.
The crew of Expedition 30 flew from northern Mexico to New Brunswick on Jan. 30. The Great Lakes are clearly visible ( about :27 sec in) and make it easy to pick out cities like Detroit/Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. It is shot from about 200 miles above Earth.

Money Well Spent?

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

No wonder the Americans have financial problems!

Guess they thought they’d never run out of money!!!

When NASA first planned to send up astronauts,
they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not
work in zero gravity.

To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade
and $1.2 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity,
upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including
glass, and at temperatures ranging from below freezing
to +300C.

Confronted with the same problem, Canadians used a pencil!
