    Interesting bit about “The smell of space.”

    Bruce, baby, how difficult is it to ask the main question on everyone’s mind?

    “How many members of the space station have had sex up there, and where do they usually do it?”

    Seriously, look at the photos. I see a lot of relatively attractive men and women in good shape floating around up there. They’ve been orbiting for years. ASK THE GODDAMN QUESTION.

    Many years ago when this was all new I visited the shuttle in a building I once worked in in Downey, CA. There the interior panels were off. Every time wiring changes were made to the shuttles they were also made here. The one I visited was identical to the ones in space. Thus any problem could be duplicated and investigated on the ground in the event of an emergency. With me that day was Luther Monell who’d also worked in that building. Luther had made a widely published and popular chart of the frequency spectrum. It was done on a log scale. He told me, if it had been linear, it would have started at the sun and gone past Pluto.

    It seems marvelously appropriate that there would be a shrine to Tsiokolvsky on the Earth’s only space station.
