There are few things that can be more boring that floating around in a tin can looking down at the earth. So I’m glad to hear that the astronauts have found a way, albeit a rather unoriginal one, to make the time fly by. (Insert your own joke about one small sip for man, one giant drinking session for mankind)

Following on from the infamous Nasa love triangle, it does seem that these astronauts are rather more interesting than their notoriously anodyne press conferences suggest.
