Spacewalk tomorrow,... I think

Was flipping 2,000 channels and the ISS session on NASA (on Directv now,

376) indicated a space walk would occur tomorrow (Thursday I think) in the afternoon (4 something) Houston time. Wasn't exactly sure if the ISS 'show' was live or a recording, guess I'll find out tomorrow.

They said they needed to replace a component and talked about restoring a power supply. All I could think of was HAL indicating a component was about to fail,....

David Bowman was replacing the now-famous AE-35 unit, which keeps the main antenna pointed at earth. There have since been several movies that refer to an AE-35, as well as to the less-known CRM-114 from Doctor Strangelove. I guess people who make movies DO watch other movies...

I spend much of my time elbow deep in the guts of computers, and even there occasionally come across those numbers!
