A quick look at how astronauts suits work. [Hopefully we are back on track again after a hiatus - Lee]
An interesting launch.
Yesterday the Japanese space agency Jaxa successfully launched the Epsilon rocket, which is carrying a telescope, Sprint-A, for planetary observation. Jaxa was able to complete the launch for about $37 million, half the cost of previous Jaxa rockets and cheap compared to an average $450 million NASA launch.via Gizmodo http://bit.ly/17BIZQd
