ISS EVA

Short post today - I'm writing from the ISS Mission Evaluation Room as I "support" a Russian EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity) that is happening as I type.  I use the term support lightly as I'm still learning my new system (Environmental Controls) and so I'm not exactly useful at this point in time.  It's pretty entertaining, though, listing to the translator on the loop detailing verbatim the feisty banter between the two Russian Cosmonauts currently floating around outside of the space station preparing the ISS for new components that are on their way!  Learn more about the current EVA here.
