Bellissimo, come si vede in un film di fantascienza!


This sure beats the windows on the Apollo modules. It’s the new cupola on the International Space Station, built by the Italians, installed last week, “the largest window ever built for space,” says NASA. An article and slide show at the New York Times is here. The design made the Times think of Monticello and the Millennium Falcon. “TIE fighter!” was my first reaction, but to each his own.

Edit: Title edited to correct my Italian. Or perhaps to introduce new errors. I’m never sure, but I keep trying.
