This sort of takes some of the the glamour out of the title of ‘astronaut’:
Discovery astronauts prepared to leave the international space station Friday as they began to wrap up work in advance of next week’s return to Earth.
The shuttle’s cargo module, now full of space station trash, was moved from the station and placed back in Discovery’s payload bay for the voyage back home.
Have a safe trip home, guys and gals.
Come, come now. Even interstellar garbageman as a certain ring to it.
I truely pray that they get home safely.
Hey it’s important work. Can you imagine a turd travelling at 500km/s hitting your solar windshield?
John has my admiration for the title of this post.
Anyone remember Salvage 1 with Andy Griffith?
A junkyard owner goes into space to bring back space trash.
