Astronauts begin spacewalk

Stephen Bowen and Alvin Drew carry out maintenance on the International Space Station, 220 miles above the earth.

YouTube - Astronauts begin spacewalk.

I like the Point of View camera that makes it seem like you are there. I wish this video was a bit longer. Here is what it is like to ride up:

Space Shuttle Discovery Launch at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
July 4, 2006 headed the STS-121 crew toward the International Space Station.

Just stopping to enjoy the human accomplishment of the Space Shuttle. Amazing.

The US has much to be proud of, but for me, this absolutely takes the biscuit.
Hats off to NASA.

Great idea Kevin. Tried it. Liked it. Two Shuttles become one launch. Was it you who discovered that thing with Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz? ;-)
