In this day and age cameras are everywhere. Including in space. I have been watching snippets of nasaTV. I find it boring and pretty spectacular at the same time. NASA has been providing live coverage of the space shuttle and its missions as it orbits the earth. Its amazing to watch the earth fly by. What was really interesting was to watch the communication between the usa and Russian shuttle command centers. They speak over the phone (or whatever version of 2 cans and rope they have now) via a voice translator which adds a weird echo to the phone. For all you aspiring astronauts who never caught that rocket to pluto, this is your space fix.
