No Home Depot in Space

Today I found an interesting piece on CNN.com about Russian astronauts repairing the space station with improvised tools because they lost the real ones. How? "It's a lot like your house," said Paul Boehm, lead spacewalk officer. "You set your car keys down somewhere and hopefully you find them again later when you try to remember it." Uh, yeah, but we're idiots—you're astronauts. Nonetheless, nice to see the DIY spirit at work in space. Look for our "Hack Your Space Station" piece in H2.0 as soon as Boehm duct-tapes together a way back to Earth. —Mike Haney
