Colbert in Space

Stephen Colbert interviewed astronaut Garret Reisman live from space the other day. Reisman is a big Colbert fan (like all astronauts...I assume), and he spent most of the interview cracking up. He was actually wearing a WristStrong bracelet, and noted the importance of wrists in space travel thusly, "I use it for controlling the robot arm...landing the shuttle and also for firing our laser cannon."

Since they don't feel like maintaining Hubble, I guess chatting with Colbert is prettymuch the only worthwhile thing they do up there...
