My Admiration Grows

Posted by Gerald on August 29, 2007

So it turns out that the stories about astronauts flying drunk might have been bogus.

All this does is redouble my already considerable respect for our astronauts.  These men and women climb into aging, poorly designed, space vehicles that keep having pieces fall off and which feature less computing power than the desktop PC I’m writing this post on.

That they don’t seem to be drinking during that is impressive.

I’m assuming they make up for it before and after.
