Bleh. It's the middle of the week. Two-and-a-half days down, and two-and-a-half more to go. For a little bit of inspiration (and a bit of distraction), check out this week's round of neat-o links from around the office:

This is a few years old, but still super cool. This story from NASA details some astronauts on board the International Space Station. As described by Dave, our fearless leader, when he submitted this link, it's "Soooodering...in SPAAAAACE".
