Man ‘n Moon

If you are an astronaut and have a canon power shot or a smart phone, you could wake up, look out the window and take a picture of the moon. That’s what Ron Garan does. He’s aboard the International Space Station that orbits earth every hour and a half. So he gets to see this, oh — ’bout 16 times a day.

I don’t know what else he does with his day, fiddles with dials and beepers, I imagine. Makes me wonder if it’s too late to tweak my career choice?
