Meir & Koch Changing the Batteries Right Now

elvis

Who, you say? Meir & Koch. You know, those astronauts at the ISS who are outside as I write, changing some pretty important batteries up there in the International Space Station. Yes, there is life besides harping on politics. Live at the link. https://www.cnn.com/specials/live-video-2

I do not see anything hot about it. Not even particularly interesting since it is basic maintenance work though to the participants I am sure it was. It was reported on which is nice for them and assuming all goes well...not controversial that I can see but I am ready to told what I missed which is why I asked.

Aren't lithium ion batteries the ones that catch fire in cell phones?

Anyway, I think it's cool that a couple of people are up in space doing a space walk to do something as mundane as changing batteries. Every home needs maintenance done on it, even the ones 400 km away from earth.

I think it’s pretty cool, too.

I like looking at the ISS schedule that tells you when it will be going over wherever you live and how long it will be visible in the sky. Husband and I often watch for it when we are in the hot tub.

A couple of years ago, it was meeting up with a supply ship and each time it passed over our place the two were closer until they connected. It took a few passes until they hooked up.

Very cool.

This is the schedule for where I live. There’s not many sightings this week or next and the sightings are for a very short time. Some weeks we get sightings for three times a night, for up to 6 minutes or so, for several nights in a row.

I'm glad someone is keeping their eyes on extraterrestrials.

I'd say it's a cool topic.

It does one no harm to regain a sense of awe about awesome things. Bless them up there for their courage, and the hard work and well-directed ambition that got them there.
