ISS Birthday Party

Max Q is defined as the point of maximum dynamic pressure on a spaccraft. It's also the name of the all-astronaut band! Thursday November 20 was the 10th birthday of the International Space Station. On that day in 1998 the first Zarya module was launched. Max Q celebrated by performing at a party in Space Center Houston. That's a mockup Shuttle among the exhibits. The band played many favourites including "Brown-Eyed Girl."

Among the other exhibits, one corner has been given over to Star Wars, including this spaceship.

Many astronauts attended the party. This is Expedition 17 Commander Serge Volkov. With all the conflict in the world, it is great to see people from many nations cooperating on a big project. We should all be proud of the International Space Station.

This week the Carnival of Space starts with a bang!

Oh, I'm so glad you are enjoying yourself! I will think of you when I'm at the workshop at Imperial College in early January.
