flute duet in space

while floating 220 miles above the earth in the international space station, NASA astronaut cady coleman played a flute duet with jethro tull's ian anderson!

according to NASA's site "Coleman and Anderson's performance saluted 50 years of human spaceflight and the anniversary of the first launch of a human to space. Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin completed that milestone on April 12, 1961.

a little bit goofy, a whole lotta great!

Very nice Fluting duet!(Or is it Flauting)?
Ians haircut has changed about the same as mine from that time period!
I think I just grew outa my hair.
Cady`s hair is awesome just floating about.Just a wonderful tribute to the first ever person IN Space!
(Other than Sven Larson {May have been the first on the moon}who is less well known)
Peace and Clear Skies!
