Landrum Kelly
"Cap'n Kirk, we have a problem. . . ." Thanks, Kim. It's a dead one of these: http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=5744695 --Lannie

Dennis Jones
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.................

Landrum Kelly
Eden in Space Commander Jones, I can see that you are tumbling away from at us at about 500 m per second, making one rotation around the central axis about every 85 seconds, which should at least be bearable and will give you enough artificial gravity to bound along the walls and ceiling with ease. You can retreat to the center compartment for sleep and, uh, recreation in zero gravity. There's nothing we can do except watch you go and hope that you get the waste-to-food recycling apparatus operating again very quickly. The algae-based CO2 to O2 unit was tested yesterday and found functional. At least your rate of rotation is very low, and we hope that you can learn to adapt to it very quickly. Due to your premature separation in the middle of passenger boarding, the ratio of males to females is unfortunately less than 1:3. Let us know how things go in this brave new world. In a generation or two the ratio of men to women will approximate 1:1 once again, and you will have to reinstitute conventional morality. In the meantime, do your duty. We wish you the best. These things happen, you know. --Lannie

Kim Slonaker
Ahhh...still very cool, Lannie. Not going to get into the Trekkie talk or whatever it is. I get enough of that from my husband, who even has Star Trek checks!!

Landrum Kelly
You and Kim are both on the passenger manifest, Jan. Hmmm. . . . Gracias, Alberto, por visitar. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Si, "al mas puro estilo de Hollywood." Podria ser mejor, pero es lo que es. --Lannie

Jan Piller
Freaky! If I saw this coming up out the sky I'ld be a little freaked out. Hahaha - this is a wonderful image! Okay - what is it?

Jan Piller
Oh! Just saw your answer to Kim - very cool!!!

Kim Slonaker
Very cool, Lannie! Not sure what it is, but I like the placement in the frame, as well as lighting and color.

Gerardo Llaneza
Sugerente imagen del espacio exterior, la tecnologia se une a la noche de los tiempos para darnos una representacion del futuro interestelar al mas puro estilo de Hollywood.

Alberto Quintal
Muy buena, Lannie,excelente contraste de colores e iluminacion. Alberto

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Ada. Ken, I'll let you know after I go back to classes tomorrow. Four days off is enough to spoil me for the rest of the term. --Lannie

Dennis Jones
Will do...Scotty has warp worm drive functioning..... New alien fuel doubles speed and mileage.....Should be home in time for supper... Over...

Pnina Evental
Again your "NASA" vehicle Lannie, and nice angle as well. who is the astronaut you have sent with to this flight ?;-))

Ada Ipenburg
Without the link it's a real puzzlepic, Lannie. It reminds me of Major Tom from David Bowie. Funny fabrication! Saludos mi amigo, Ada;)

Landrum Kelly
Send Pnina back to command ship. --Lannie

Pnina Evental
Lannie...lol

Landrum Kelly
Pnina, Viva Casablanca! [I wish that they would change the software so that we could add diacritical and other marks without using HTML tags, which are a pain to type in.] --Lannie

Dennis Jones
Control...Cmdr Jones here... Finally got control of ship...Please advise...

Pnina Evental
Saw it Lannie, we will always have Paris... ;-))AND a sense of humour!!!! ( And teach ourselves to look at the "Half full glass!!" {My Bio!} )

Landrum Kelly
Uh, some photographer from Israel, but I forget her name. . . . --Lannie

Kenneth Fugate
Lannie, nice, you ok?

Landrum Kelly
Yep, that's us, alright. You DO remember. [sigh] I remember so much, Pnina. I set up your tripod and you set the self-timer before the pose. I remember that the lens was a 50mm f/1.4 set at aperture f/8, the ISO (then ASA) was 100, and, if can remember the shutter speed, I will die a happy man. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
"Round up the usual suspects." Thanks, Pnina. Perhaps there is here a more sobering message: ill-conceived missions sometimes fail, and, if so, then there is sometimes no way to salvage them. One simply abandons them: http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo.tcl?photo_id=5848255 We'll always have Paris. . . . --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Yes, great memories, Pnina--aperture, shutter, ISO. . . . What else is there? --Lannie

Pnina Evental
A good answer Lannie...;-))

Pnina Evental
A sense of humour!! Lannie!,

Landrum Kelly
Just sitting here thinking about Pnina, and wondering if she still remembers Paris. . . . Hope you're doing fine, Dennis. A warp worm drive. . . just what I need on my Celestron. --Lannie

Dennis Jones
Control...we have a problem... seems giant mosquitoes have hitched a ride back with us...

Landrum Kelly
Fantastic shot, Dennis! There ought to be enough protein in that thing to last the rest of the mission. --Lannie

Dennis Jones
Sure wish I'd been awake while pnina was here...;)She's a heckuva a photographer

--Cmdr Jones

Pnina Evental
Lannie Great memory.....LOL Thanks Mr. Dennis Jones, I'm glad you were sleeping, it was a " personal affair".....;-))

Landrum Kelly
Lost in Space Thanks for viewing.
