CAPCOM Nick Patrick signing off with his best wishes. Gets a nice message back from Commander Kelly.

I know it happens, where the crew send down a nice message of thanks to the guys in MCC-H (we know some guys on here who've personally gained such thanks), but it's still really nice to hear.

ESPN interview coming up. Elmarko will be hoping for Hockey questions. I'll take a "soccer" reference. Expecting a NASCAR reference or two ;)

I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

Looks like they aren't doing it live.

Baseball references.

That was a nice event. Got some facts about the mission inbetween the sports (mainly baseball) stuff.

Mike and Mike seemed a bit in awe and didn't get silly, as I feared, so nice!

Ken Ham is a Naval Academy graduate....they asked him about Navy beating Notre Dame (finally, after 43 years).  Also asked about the food and "how do you go to the bathroom in space"?

Now ABC News is coming up.

That was a pretty good interview to be honest, understanding the target audience of course :) There was some great humour, and enough serious stuff to get across what the crew is doing up there on this mission.

ABC asking hair questions :) (Though fair enough, as Karen has a lot!)

I didn't think it'd be that silly to be honest, as I understand it he's a fan of the show and NASA/ESPN have been doing other stuff on their show. I enjoyed it.

Mike Fossum talking about using Scouting knots to tie tethers into a bag.

Other questions about Kibo, the "glamorous" side of the job, advice Garrett gave about living on ISS, Ron's EVA experience.  Brief discussion about when the astronauts first entered Kibo, and the emotions of the experience.

Now it "looks like a real space station".  The interview ended on that note.

Yeah, it was ok. I was worried about Mike and Mike as they are very unfunny.

Request to delay the water dump by 10 minutes to get imagery of a night time dump denied as they want to get the water dump out of the way ahead of the orbit adjust.

Mike and Mike are a morning Radio/TV Show.

Can't wait to watch the recap of it as I like their show
