Just a last minute heads-up to all who live near Cologne, Germany. Tomorrow is the day!! Tickets are still on sale, and it is shaping up to be one hell of an event. The local TV stations are already showing heaps of Space related material.

It's being promoted as the largest meeting of astronauts in Germany!!

See you all there!

Hi,
yes, I think, it was the last astronaut meeting in Germany since ASE congress in Berlin 1991. Have been there last night, and beside the fact that autographs where hard to obtain, let me just mention one man who held a very much appreciated speech:
John Young
Ulf Merbold introduced him as "his commander" and as an idol of a whole generation of astronauts.
What a night, especially the live uplink to ISS, the crowd cheering at them and Padalka and Fincke waving back...
Tell you more soon.
Chris

Sorry,
it is early morning, did not want to say the last, but the biggest meeting since 1991.

It was a great night! Having Sigmund Jaehn walk past and then subsequently sign my A16 earth photo (then followed by several other ESA astronauts) was a great surprise. Catching up with fellow CSers was great. A pity I cant go to the open day today and tomorrow.

I did however videotape the entire uplink to the ISS (well prior to the uplink), the entire John Young talk, and a nice few minutes of the entire asto-lineup at the end of the show. The PC is currently working on the DVD.

I personally found the uplink the best, and I work with satellite comms each day. Still humbles me every time a connection is established. Couldnt help but think that if the Australian tracking stations were looking after the feed, there would be no need to worry. (cough :-) )

Hi Jacques,

I just sent a PM from my AOL account. However, it may be that I have done a blanket spam block from your domain server (planet) ages ago. I am not at my home PC so I cannot change the spam settings.

If the aol addy fails again, then try sabre_transit@hotmail.com.

Sorry about this,
Dwight

Just to clarify Jacques has _NEVER_ spammed me, but someone else on the ISP he uses has, and tha's why I blocked it long before I knew Jacques existed.

Jacques is completely innocent in this matter and is _NOT_ evil at all!!!!

Hi folks,

Anyone who would like the DVD of the Night of the Astronauts please look on the "buy, sell, trade" section.
