    If you can't stomach watching the postmortem of today's primaries, the 2 guys that have been holed up in the international space station for the last year took off a couple hours ago and are presently crammed into a Soyuz capsule that's hurtling through low orbit and about to go through the the nutty burn phase so they can land in the wastelands of Kazakhstan in an hour or so. Hell of a place to have a welcome home party by the way. All of this is broadcast live on space.com.

    Seems much more entertaining than Fox News or msnbc. And you don't feel as stupid watching something like this. You know, what with all that science and stuff.

    I'll be interested in that twins study with Scott Kelly and his brother, should yield some good data about the results of prolonged exposure to space.

    I'm curious to see how much of a bitch gravity is after that much time. What a hell of an adjustment everything will be. Breathing earth air is probably different. How about rain and snow? Ho about pussy? How about strangling a homeless man?

    Phisically it's a given but I wonder mentally.

    Along with the usual measurements like muscle and bone loss, the fact that they are identical will allow better analysis of things like the impact of space on the immune system and on the aging process itself.

    i read they are going to do an obstacle course and other physical tests right after they land.

    its in preparation for a mars mission. long distance space travel then landing on mars, astronauts might need to do physically demanding things upon landing.
