hey look at that - there's a Swede in space! there's a first for everything. :)
christer fuglesang (really funny name, hahaha) has been training as an astronaut for 14 years, but kept being bumped off and never making it into space... until last night. good for him. he's been quite the joke in sweden for the past 8 years, at least.. training and training, yet never getting into space. so, it's nice to see all those years paid off. and space shuttle launches are always so awesome to watch - i'd love to see one for real one day.
