Greetings, Earthlings: Ed?s Musings from Space


| July 21, 2003

Presenting Ed Lu, America?s first outer-space pen-pal! Currently residing on the International Space Station with Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, Lu periodically publishes his memoirs via the NASA web site. He gives us in-depth explanations of such experiences as travelling on Russian space ship Soyuz with the Expedition 7 crew, and his favorite pastime?tracking the clouds and the oceans over his adopted hometown of Honolulu (Lu was actually born in Springfield, Massachusetts). He also walks us through the day-to-day details of life in outer space, from the experience of spaceship dining to the aerobic workouts that prevent muscular atrophy in zero-G.
