Astronauts are people, too
fortitude, astronauts can be just like regular people as well.
The Associated Press reported that today with a story headlined,
"Astronaut loses tool bag in space."
The mishap occurred when a grease gun erupted inside the bag of
astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, who then tried wiping the
grease from her spacesuit, at which time the bag floated off.
With all the dropped screws or washers I've lost into spaces I cannot
reach, tools lost in the garage or paint spilled, I can relate to
Hopefully, it is not a major problem as my sprinklers and baby crib
do not constitute the dangers found with space travel.
I sympathize with the error, and I wonder what kind of swear or grunt
could be heard when one's tool bag simply floats off into nothingness.
