Slow day at NASA

I'm guessing this AP report is an example of the kind of breaking news we'll be getting from NASA until we actually land a man on Mars:
A spacewalking astronaut got soap in his eye and almost had to retreat into the safety of the International Space Station on Wednesday.

Andrew Feustel said it stung "like crazy." But several minutes later, he said he was feeling better and the third spacewalk of shuttle Endeavour's final voyage continued as planned for about seven hours.

The incident came as the spacewalk hit the five-hour mark. Feustel and Mike Fincke had just finished running power cables from the U.S. side of the orbiting house to the Russian half.

"Just as an FYI, my right eye is stinging like crazy right now. It's watering a lot. Must have gotten something" in it, Feustel called out quietly and calmly.

"Sorry, buddy," Fincke said.

So what was he - a mathematician, a different kind of mathematician, or a statistician?

Maybe they'll finally tell us that all the chimps they sent into space came back super-intelligent....

I don't think they'll be telling us that.
