Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I don't think I could do it. But it looks very cool.

Pretty cool. After Charly started the thread on his perceived problems with the Shuttle on the last flight I went looking for a live web broadcast since I don't invest in Cable or Satellite for the amount of time I watch TV. I found this site and enjoyed watching the spacewalks, they do some live tours too.

Like you I doubt I could do that, takes a special personality to be cooped up in relatively small area with little privacy for long periods of time, not to mention the problems of weightlessness. It's got to be a bit disconcerting when the person next to you is upside down from your perspective. Interesting he defined areas as "The floor", maybe that helps?

Hey Chilese: Did you see all those cameras and big lenses he passed about halfway through??  Quite a nice collection.  You could definitely do that job, and probably enjoy it quite alot even!

I wish it was a lot longer and he talked more about things he was passing by.

Cool to see any of it.

You think the "big glass" is expensive, try the cost of flying it into space!

Very cool vid!!

last i heard it was around $10,000US per pound for cargo. funny their press office makes those kind of statements because i'd be happy to pay that price, if they took their measurement in space rather than on the ground.

great video. fun to watch. the one thing i wasn't expecting is how much stuff they have bagged up and stored in the open.
