NASA astronauts Wiseman and Gerst are currently performing their first space walks. Hurtling through the void of space
Wiseman and Gerst Spacewalk Oct 7, 11:28:46 a.m.
at 17,150 mph – 205 miles above Earth. I snapped this screenshot just moments ago from their live broadcast in HD!
It’s hard to believe that there are actually people performing this extreme-tinkering on the largest man-made structure built outside of the Earth at this very moment. They are currently riding a robotic arm replacing external lights on the space station. These live broadcasts go great with some Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky (2001 A Space Odyssey replaying in my head) I highly recommend this if you have some extra time. It’s just something I had to share.
Everyone can watch them live here and listen to the dialog between ground control and Major Tom with multi-camera angle HD video streams:
They also have a schedule of their upcoming/previous broadcasts if you want to see what else they’re doing. Go USA.
Ok if you’ve ever been to Europe and you’re a light beer drinker, you probably had Carlsberg at some point. When I think Carlsberg I think the UK because that’s the first place I had it. But I’m from the US so what do I know? It’s a Danish beer and it’s awesome. One of my favorite cheap Lagers on the east coast is Yuengling, and it claims to be the oldest brew in America clockin’ in at 1829. Carlsberg comes in second at 1847, but wins in my book because of this picture.
Carlsberg on the Moon
Not just because it’s a fantastic scifi-lookin’ planet wallpaper that matches my current phone and computer wallpapers perfectly. But because it subtly advertises one of my favorite beers on the other side of the world. Which for me right now feels like the distance to the dark side of the moon. So well done Neil. That’s exactly what I would do if I traveled to the Moon bro.
