Aero-News Quote of the Day
"I would like to thank everyone who has expressed their
condolences during this time of grieving for me and my family.
Living on the space station means that I experience all aspects of
life -- be they joyous or tragic -- while circling the Earth

fully supportive through this, and I would like to thank them for
their concern and compassion."
