Spidernauts!

From the blog post:

People always ask if it gets boring up here. I can unequivocally say NEVER! It seems like something is always happening. We were talking about all the activities we do in one day, and how they can range from vacuuming, to changing out the toilet can, to drawing blood, taking ...

Awesome! Seems you are having a great time up there. I love reading your blogs. Keep posting. Best Wishes!

Spider food sticking to the walls and human space food being meticulously put together, makes food easier to have in microgravity because it doesn’t fly away. Wonderful activities up there. Great post. Thanks for sharing.

I am enjoying reading your blogs all the way from Exp 14/15. Thanks! In the pic, your legs appear thin, is it because of microgravity?

Thanks for the update, Suni - I'm assuming the ARED works to an equivalent of conventional weightlifting? I was at an Olympic weightlifting event last week, your picture put me in mind of this again - I was glad to see recently that you've all been enjoying the Olympics from orbit too. And thank you for not posting a photo of the Spidernauts. Having read about previous ISS experiments involving spiders, overcoming a fear/hatred of spiders is on my to-do list for before I venture into space, although it does come several levels below getting the physics degree :)

I think that a spider in space could teach us allot. Once we study what they do. We can come up with new and useful test. about your burrito. Hope it taste better than it looks. I also hope all of you have fun and come down safe. On another note can anyone tell me how to blog or is that just for the NASA teem? Please let me know. Thank you and can anyone tell me what this is http://youtu.be/fKkth69HyEs ??? Thank you

Hi David, I guess here we could submit a project if not post a blog (if I am not mistaken). The YouTube video is of the latest 360 deg panaromic view sent by Mars Curiosity, Regards

Hi Suni: I worked with your Mom at Babson College back in the 1990's, and I'm pretty sure I met you at least once during that time. Just wanted to say hi...and that i thought your spider writings were interesting. From back here on the ground (Kennedy Space Center) I send a big hello! Geoff Studds

I'd love to send my experiment on Mars, on Plants or fishes, both experimental topics might help us understand how life can be supported on another planet and water as Fragile Oasis Thought me is where life origins ... life as we know it. What a wonderful post. You NASA Kennedy Video from August 15h, dear Suni, is amazing, Especially when you in the beginning talk about people who helped you see shades of you that maybe you couldn't see as you say so the importance about mentors and how it is important also to be one. Best, I didn't know that you were the astronaut who lost the camera in a Space Walk : I read that from a comment on youtube, is that true ? Well ... that is funny. I'd love to see your spacewalk live.
