Good news...

1. for aquanauts!

Seven Russian sailors trapped for three days were rescued today after a British undersea robot cut their small submarine free of ocean floor debris off Russia's Pacific coast.

The freeing of the trapped submarine and the rescue of the crew was a welcome happy ending to a drama that some feared might end like that Kursk submarine disaster five years ago in which all 183 crewmen died.

More of this or the denouement.

2. for astronauts!

EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, California (Reuters) - The space shuttle Discovery and its seven astronauts glided safely back to Earth on Tuesday, successfully completing NASA's troubled return to human space flight 2 1/2 years after the Columbia disaster that killed all the astronauts on board.

More of this or read about the somewhat unbelievable landing process.

3. for lunar aquanauts?

Hopefully I'll be over this cold and back in the pool by Friday...
How far did you swim today?

  • Here you are Suzy, finally :)!

    2 times in the pool = 960 + 640 meters.

    It will become better as soon as I reach Montenegro and the seaside :)!
