The package has been delivered. Pictures were taken (and probably downlinked already) and I'll have to find how to get them. I've got most of the crew hooked on the show and Clay too, so he will enjoy them.
Thanks again and take care,
The second piece of information comes from Maiii. And, seriously, this is the bit you want to make sure you read. And then, of course, tell every Browncoat you know.
I added some photos from the crew return at Ellington today. I had a chance to talk with Swanny after the ceremony he is doing well. turns out when the crew was in quarantine prior to launch they watched 5 episodes and that is how Swanny got them all hooked. Clay was definitely excited about having the set on the ISS since he was hooked. Swanny is going to try and find the photos of him, Clay and Suni on the ISS with the DVD's as soon as he can. Again sorry I couldn't get them for the CSTS screening's this weekend. stay shiny.
You read that right. But in case you want to see the wild bit again: "[T]urns out when the crew was in quarantine prior to launch they watched 5 episodes and that is how Swanny got them all hooked. Clay was definitely excited about having the set on the ISS since he was hooked."
While the photos of the DVDs in orbit weren't available in time for this year's charity Serenity screenings, the above, nonetheless, likely qualifies for the following.
Happy birthday, Joss!
