Astronauts and Emergency Repair Missions...
Really, this news story covers the stuff my sci-fi dreams have been made of for years. I'm a total space fanatic, and the thought that somewhere high above us an astronaut is conducting an emergency repair mission on the International Space Station just blows my mind. These are the latest pioneers and adventurers, and I wish I had the opportunity to do some of the same work!

(Planning on setting up the first web development company and Bible study on the moon!)
EDIT: Found a cool image of the repair in action on Time's website.
