I'm back from a fantastic weekend in Houston (TX, USA). Nicole and Trygve remembered their words, got married, and we all had a great time partying. I met some new friends, and that's not an everyday thing either.
Most funny, all-American event of the weekend: visiting the NASA Johnson Space Center's astronaut training facility, and being shown the training modules in use for the International Space Station:
Guide: and here are some of the modules of the new International Space Station. This one there is called Leonardo, the others are Donatello and Raffaello.... or, in fairness to the intelligence of the constructors: maybe they were named after some famous Italian engineers?
Guide: Does anyone know who these modules are named after?
Guide: Yes! That's right! The Ninja Turtles!
(maybe the guide had seen this picture (look closely at the "men" inside the helmets!))
