  1. Dammit – I came here expecting to see guys falling into the atmosphere onto a platform and fighting with edged weapons!

  2. For anyone who doesn’t scuba dive, I strongly recommend giving it a whirl.   Neutral buoyancy is probably the closest most of us will get to the experience of spaceflight.

  3. I highly recommend following Noguchi on Twitter; I’ve been following him for a couple of years (starting when he was on the ISS for several months and tweeting photos directly from space) and he gives a really interesting “behind the scenes” style view of being an astronaut, with lots of pictures.
