Man, that is so awesome. I often wonder how I'd be able to handle zero gravity. It seems like it might be so disorienting that it would be uncomfortable

It sure is awesome. I also liked the tour by Andre Kuipers (hey, of course it's great when a fellow Dutchie is in space). At almost 1 hour it's twice as long and also goes a bit into the stuff behind the curtains (like the recycling of urine, air, water, etc.).

^ equal parts awe inspiring and terrifying. The bigger one is still due to miss Earth later today, but how uncanny that two largish meteorites pay us a visit on the same day

Yeah, I assume I probably would have pulled over and expected to shortly die had I seen that. No way my brain wouldn't have assumed it was an ICBM.

Wow! That last video really captured the blinding light there.

Holy crap. Just...wow. Both fascinating and scary. Heard about 1,000 people were injured from windows breaking from the explosion.

Not to be 'that guy', but the blinding light in that video isn't representative of the actual brightness. That guys camera is exposing for daylight. When something even remotely brighter enters the frame, the camera doesn't have time to compensate and it gets overexposed. Not saying it wouldn't be bright. Just not anywhere near as bright as it appears in that video.

Still, I'm jealous I didn't get to see it myself

Oh. Well, it was still amazing to see.

That's so amazing. I remember when I was a kid, my dad telling me about Voyager 1 and where it would be when I was x years old (can't remember the specifics, but it seemed so far in the future. I think Pluto was the destination). Strange to think its now past that point. I still get eerie heebie jeebies when I try to picture it out there in the silent vastness of space. Awesome post, Bomac
