A female astronaut living aboard ISS and a semi-retired British folk-rockstar (travelling in Russia at the time) perform a flute duet in honour of the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight. NASA then posts a video of the event on YouTube.
NASA has a Flickr account — nifty.
Most of it’s pretty banal, actually, but the Soyuz landing in Kazakhstan (Expedition 20) pictures are pretty cool.
One problem, though: all the photos seem to be under a Creative Commons Attribution (BY) + Non-Commercial (NC) License &mdash as an agency of the United States Federal Government, isn’t everything NASA publishes themselves automatically Public Domain?
From BoingBoing, a headline that would have made zero sense even five years ago:
Really cool 15min long YouTube vid over there. Go watch it. This living in the future thing is kind of cool sometimes.
ObPlanetUbuntuRef: Pity those laptops appear to be running Billware instead of Ubuntu. Hearing from an ISS Ubuntu LoCo would be even cooler!
