I misread this at first and could not conceive of why anyone would bring a gun onto the space station.

Hahaaaaaaaaa he stole a bolt from a Progress capsule to build a camera mount. That's hilarious.

Don Pettit is a giant nerd and I adore him. His "Letters to Earth" blog is fantastic and frequently charming.

That's Don "knittin' needle" Pettit to you.

But seriously, great post.

Don Pettit's stuff has been posted to MeFi before and he never gets too many comments, but I just love the guy. Thanks for posting this!

He does have a very unusual cadence of speech, teraflop.
