Astronaut Summit Push #2 begins Saturday

May 15, 2009

Astronaut Scott Parazynski is now back at Everest Base Camp after a few days in lower, thicker air. After some bad weather – and bad luck on the mountain – in general, things are looking up. But on Everest, that can change in an instant. Right now, if all goes well, Scott will be on top of the world early on May 20th (which is evening May 19 in the US). But he is worried there will be an “Into Thin Air” traffic jam at the top. If that happens, he will wait another day. “It is not a race…it is a marathon,” said Scott. You can read his blog at http://onorbit.com/everest and track his every move in real time at http://www.SPOTAdventures.com.
