Astronaut Chris Hadfield NPR Interview
« on: October 30, 2013, 03:13:41 PM »
Excellent interview of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield by Terry Gross.  He talks about how bad a teary eye is in a space suit because of the lack of gravity, or how unbelievably rough a Soyez capsule landing is, or the precautions necessary after 6 months or more in space because veins in our legs are unable to squeeze blood back up to the heart. Interesting stuff.

They never had those problems on Stat Trek.

I'm surprised they don't wear diapers.

against geometric lines, and cloudbeaten skies;
credulous allure—slowly captivated in hearts fair—
trees and flowers bloomed in grace upon one's eyes.
