    Pretty funny if you don't have to actually deal with it. Hope they get it fixed.

    Looks to me like we have a bunch of spoiled, pansy astronauts. If bags with sticky openings were good enough for Apollo, they should be good enough for them.

    So long as there is no exchanging of bodily fluids going on up there...


    EDIT I suppose in the context of this conversation, that quote is misleading...


    Oh well

    Sir Frederick Gray, Minister of Defence: My God, what's Bond doing?
    Q: I think he's attempting re-entry, sir.

    Just so they don't end up dumping it outside the space station. It would really stink if a multi-billion dollar satellite was brought down because of a collision with a bag of orbiting high-speed poo... (any puns intended)
