hubble repairs

watching NASA's live footage of the hubble repair spacewalks has been absolutely riveting! i mean, the new star trek movie was pretty entertaining for a couple of hours, but i've been entertained by this mission to hubble for almost a week now! there have been some dramatic moments and clever maneuvers to find solutions, but i'm even mesmerized by the simple task of loosening screws! you can listen to the astronauts help each other accomplish each goal, step by step.... and see how they react when something unexpected happens.... all the while watching the round blue earth spinning below them!

today i heard one of the astronauts say "this is a lot more fun in space!" hahaha!

so far the mission has been a complete success, despite some unexpected challenges. congrats to those spacewalking superheroes!

so if you havent taken any time to watch the astronauts work their well-developed magic in space, you can watch online live, or see highlights at the NASA youtube station! enjoy!
