As it turns out, good old astronaut Massimino wasn’t actually tweeting from the orbiting space shuttle Atlantis but rather sending emails to Houston where some twit entered them into his Astro_Mike Twitter account between two bites into a Big Mac.
Never mind the fact that they actually labeled his tweets "From Orbit", I am most disappointed by the crushing realization that for all we know, maybe the space shuttle was never up there in the first place. It could all be a huge conspiracy. The French astrophotographer who took the amazing pictures could be in on it and a Photoshop master. And while we’re at it, maybe we’re not even here and this is a dream.
Nothing’s sacred any more.
By the way, I’m not actually blogging this from Vancouver. I’m in space.
Quite tough typing in zero gravity. I like to punctuate my sentences with a theatrical pounding of the period key but that sends me flying across the cabin every time. Can’t Logitech come up with a sticky keyboard?
It’s freakin’ freezing up here Mr. Bigglesworth.
