Yeah, all they need to do is give that thing a chrome skin and a skull head and make it start talking like Arnold the Governator...

We did not arrive yet, but I'd say we are quite close. There is no Arnold, but I can offer Einstein...



And this is even more amazing:



And the following may sound strange, but why should female robots not be "sexy" sometime in future?

There is an amazingly growing addon market for X-Plane. More and more pro flight simmers have no doubt that X-Plane is going to overtake FSX (which the physics engine of X-Plane already did anyway), especially now that the ACES studios have become history.

Are you kidding? That's probably what he does in his off-time, if he's a true geek.

There is little doubt that Don Pettit is a true geek. But don't believe me: http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/...es_videos.html
Quote:
Saturdays aboard the station are usually free time for crewmembers, who often take the opportunity to do some housecleaning and then look out the window, read a book or write a letter.

Pettit spent some of his Saturday mornings conducting his own series of scientific experiments, and he videotaped some of them and downlinked them to the Mission Control Center in Houston, Texas.
He would probably be running Orbiter sims up there too, if he could only connect to OrbitHangar .

In this video, at 9:27 and 9:51, there are some effects that I'm wondering about. They were much more prominent on today's (STS-128) launch, but could someone please tell me what they are?

My guess is plasma from air friction. MECO occurs at only 105 km typically, there is still plenty of air there.
