This, from Neil Armstrong, has to be pretty much the ultimate in Nerd Pride. I want to cut this video out and tape it to my monitor -- or, better yet, to my slide rule.

The International Space Station EVA 23 Mishap Investigation Board Report. 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: 
• Roughly 44 minutes into EVA 23, Luca Parmitano (EV2) reported water inside his helmet, on the back of 
his head. The EVA ground team and EVA crew members were unable to identify the source of the 
water. As EV2 continued to work, the amount of water in his helmet increased and eventually migrated 
from the back of his head onto his face. EVA 23 was terminated early and the crew safely ingressed the 
airlock. After the airlock was re-pressurized, the crew member’s helmet was removed. The water 
quantity introduced into the helmet was estimated at about 1.5 liters. 
• After the EVA was completed, it was learned that during his return to the airlock, Luca experienced 
intermittent loss of communication, his vision was impaired by water covering his eyes, and water had 
entered his nose making breathing more difficult. 

The link is to the full 222 page report. Many sections were redacted for ITAR compliance.

Here are the slides shown during the press conference: http://j.mp/1eoEXj2
