Earth below us, drifting, falling

Radio woke me up this morning with the news that former Thomas Building resident Bob Behnken was doing a spacewalk to complete assembly of the Dextre robot outside the International Space Station.

I thought it was nice that someone I knew had slipped the surly bonds of Earth. Then ten seconds later the radio mentioned that other former Thomas Building resident Garrett Reisman was assisting in the assembly. Hey, it's a grad school reunion up there.

For some reason I find it funny that Garrett's Wikipedia entry has a warning at the top: "This article documents a person who is currently in space."
