Charles in Space
You might have heard about it already: Charles Simonyi
, Ex-Microsoftie and Founder and CEO of Intentional Software
is going to go to the International Space Station
for 10 days on April 7 (i.e. tomorrow).
Charles has set up a web site at www.charlesinspace.com
. This is a really fascinating site. Using many pictures, videos and a lot of text, he explains the last six months of preparation. He explains everything from medical checks to space suit fitting to survival training, as well as a lot of the technology used by the Russians and their Soyuz Spacecraft
. If you're at all interested in technology and space, you need to check out this web site.
Charles will also update his blog from space, and there will be live coverage of the launch as well as other important events of the flight. Go, check it out!
And yes, I am jealous - I would like to go, too :-)
