Twinkle, twinkle, …

Just saw the COLBERT treadmill fly overhead.  Pretty cool.  I now realize I’ve seen many other satellites over the years, without realizing what they were.

Shuttle flight STS-128, attached to the International Space Station, includes a Swedish crew member, Christer Fugelsang.  I wonder whether he is eating lutefisk up there.

I was struck by how old the crew members are.  Whether it’s CEO, Harvard professor, or famous author, I’m uncomfortably used to making the calculation that “when I was a college sophomore, he was in middle school.”  But on this shuttle mission, I’d still be the kid.
