    Those are nice. Apparently the vacuum of space makes for nice clear shots.

    Very cool pics. I like the one where the guy looks like he is waving at the camera, like he is just hanging out up there. :lol

    What, you wouldn't try to play it all casual if you got to go out on EVA? I'd be all "Yeah, just gonna step out for a bit, hook this millions-of-dollars gizmo up to the continuously-crewed space station, make me a sandwich for when I get back would ya?"

    I like how we've basically made sure you cannot see a shot with the manipulator arm in it and not see the word "Canada". That's our arm. It is. It's ours and we'd like to tell you about it.

    Thanks so much for the link! Unbelievable pics...

    /rant on

    Wouldnt it be great if humanity would quit bickering amongest ourselves and focus our energies into something worthwhile like this? So that it benefits the whole planet and not just our pocketbooks?

    Funny that you say that. I was just discussing the worthy-ness (or lack their of) of the billion dollar space program...

    I did notice that, even before the pic that looked like it was taken for the sole purpose of promoting that arm. :lol 

    Yay Canadia!!!

    Is it China? Looks like that's either the Great Wall... or a big river.
