Yesterday in real time I got to see the Soyuz leave the ISS and on it's way to reentry and landing in Russia. It is hard for to really believe that 3 large guys were in that when it came down in a fiery landing. I have been watching more and more of the views from the ISS and there is no sunset like one from up there. Shows you what a boring life I must have. As I'm on my one PC doing modeling or what ever my other gaming PC is on ISS watch. I would like to try to put the ISS image on my large TV just to get a better image. Maybe one day.

Unpacking Cargo from Expedition 38 Soyuz Landing
Engineers document cargo as it is unloaded from the Soyuz TMA-10M spacecraft after it landed with Expedition 38 Commander Oleg Kotov of the Russian Federal Space Agency, Roscosmos, and Flight Engineers: Mike Hopkins of NASA, and, Sergey Ryazanskiy of Roscosmos, near the town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Hopkins, Kotov and Ryazanskiy returned to Earth after five and a half months onboard the International Space Station where they served as members of the Expedition 37 and 38 crews.

Cool pic. I wouldn't want to be in a Soyuz when it landed though. Ouch!

Have you seen Gravity yet? I won't say another word till I know you have seen it. Talking about landing. Paper Kosmonaut sent this video. Have a look at this.

Tomorrow night on the National Geographic channel there will be a 2 hour showing of Live from Space. Life on-board the ISS. Can't wait for this after watching COSMOS. That was a let down for me as I can't stomach to much of Tyson. Let me know what you think of his video. It answered all my questions. wc

So did anyone else see the show about the ISS last night or was I the only person? For me it was a WoW 2 hour program. My wife didn't care for it to much and my friend across the street only watched part of it. Yep, I'm a d**n space geek. wc
