High Rise Construction
The current Atlantis mission to the ISS (STS-115) is going extremely well. I've parked NASA TV in Windows Media Player on my PC tool bar so I can keep an eye on on the first EVA as astronauts Joe Tanner and Heidi Piper work on installing the new ISS components they have delivered. It's quite amazing to be able to watch this really high rise construction in real time, sometimes from the first-person perspective of their helmet cameras. I keep reaching for the right mouse button to try to change the views myself, but this isn't Orbiter, it's the real deal!
