A long wait for Mr.Fuglesang as well - the first Swede in space was a long time coming - he was selected for the mission fourteen years ago before getting his Christmas wish :-)

Hehe... Kind of weird to see a swedish title around caedes. ^_^ (Strictly speaking it's called "astronaut" in swedish too but "Rymdfarare" is a nice word for it, it translates more like: "space-traveller" but the difference is purely academic I guess. (Ok, so I'm a nerd, but you knew that already, right?)) Nice piece. I'll keep it nicely stacked on my HD with the rest of your cool space pieces.
