Sometimes its just nice to get out of the house – isn’t it? Not so easy if you happen to be sealed up in some aluminum cans in low earth orbit…

That said,  station keepers  Max Suraev and Jeff Williams took the Soyuz for a spin around the Space Station the other day – they were careful not to exceed the speed limit – 17,500 miles an hour – as they parked at the new Poisk docking port. But that was not their number one task – they are vexed by a clogged potty – apparently too much calcium in their urine.  You know what they say – too much calcium – and your-in trouble.
