Satoshi Furukawa: as Dr. Leonard McCoy

Alexander Samokutyaev: Flight Engineer
Ronald Garan: Space Cinematographer
Andrei Borisenko: Stoic Commander
Yesterday, against my wishes but attracted by the new spokeswomen BABES that NASA has been canny enough to put in front of their cameras, I watched the I.S.S. "live" feed....
GREAT, informative interview conducted with Dr. Satoshi Furukawa.
These are BRAVE men. The types of men that should be our Ambassadors to the Moon or Venus.....
Most are terrific ATHLETES and Engineers that possibly could have made fortunes in private life, but had those childhood dreams of Space, The Moon, to drive them to be where they are RIGHT NOW, 220 Miles above our heads....
They just may be TRAPPED there until an effective VEHICLE can be located for them...
Roskosmos and NASA are RUSHING preparations for their "rescue" launch, readying the Russian Progress 45 freighter for a date in September....
Furukawa explained that there are at least 100 different items to EAT aboard the I.S.S., and all are TASTY and can be eaten DRY, right out of the package, or boiled in water first....
He also revealed that he and other astronauts have spent their first week aboard the station feeling ILL, as their Blood Pressure takes time to adjust...Being in Zero Gravity causes all the blood in your body to rise to your head...
Your bladder keeps trying to URINATE to ease the pressure....
Here's to their making it down to earth INTACT....
It is entirely possible that they are the LAST I.S.S. crew.....NASA states that it is possible to keep the station going without a human crew...
NASA has FINALLY listened to advice given to them by HOLLYWOOD ten years ago. NASA Administration asked their Hollywood pals how they could put a good face on a NASA with a vastly reduced Space Exploration future looming ahead.
How can they keep the Government Money coming in, the PUBLIC interested?
Babes, they said.
Get a couple of CUTE ones.
