Oh my god how I love the internet and how it has advanced. Since Friday my eyes have been transfixed to the skies with the sightings of the International Space station (ISS) and Shuttle. Every evening without fail I can be found standing outside my back garden in Bray staring to the southwest waiting for the bright star to blem across the sky. Im sorry but at the moment I am in awe of science.
Jesus I lost the run of myself there I better explain the reason for me loving the internet. Well for one you can get precise times that you can see this event, but mainly because NASA are the dogs when it comes to utilising the power of the web.
Forget Big Brother, NASA TV has me transfixed now in the evenings, basically if you have broadband you can watch events unfolding live from the ISS and mission control 24/7. As an example last night 2 astronauts went on a space walk, their suits have cameras on them close to eye level so you amazing views of them at work, also the commentary from astronaut to mission control is brilliant, all in all its fascinating viewing.
And the mad thing for me was last night as these 2 lads were working away they flew over my house at 17000 mph floating in space, I plan a career change!!!
