He did it! NASA astronaut Don Pettit snags pictures of the Venus transit from outer space, becoming the first person in history to do so. A hundred and five years from now, that'll probably be routine, right? http://on.msnbc.com/LjKLfS

+Don Pettit rocks my world. And I'd give my right arm to trade places with him.
 
Think about this, 105 years from now people on Mars will watch a transit of Earth.  When is the next Earth transit from a Mars perspective anyway....
 
That's the guy remembered by the general public as the Angry Birds Astronaut.  And this is the reason I want to be uploaded into a cylon, to see it again.
