Have spent a lifetime of learning, education, and experiencing only to find we are all the same. We are all we have. The human condition is my precept to understanding and applying the truth to life. There is nothing more than to understand we are not alone. We were created for a grander more loving purpose. Enjoy and revel in the fact we can communicate in so many ways. Believe, also, our destinies will be fulfilled. For all mankind, Our Father, YHWH, Jehovah, God, and all ways to speak the Truth exists. Who wants to join in something so simple, it cannot be denied? Jesus is my Advocate and Savior to God. one in the same. You are all most welcome and revered, in life and eternity. So, enjoy life, enjoy communication, and just be yourself. Do not just give 'lip service' or 'just scan' what you read. Do it!

The three International Space Station residents upgraded computer hardware and software today. The crew is also heading into the weekend preparing for the arrival of a new crew and a new cargo shipment.

Commander Peggy Whitson and Flight Engineer Thomas Pesquet replaced outdated routers this morning with new ones providing expanded capabilities in the station’s U.S. segment. Whitson was in the Destiny lab module swapping routers while Pesquet was inside the Harmony module performing the computer maintenance. The router swaps and software updates were done to get ready for the arrival of the next station crew.

Expedition 51 will expand by two crew members when a veteran Roscosmos cosmonaut and a first time NASA space-flier arrive on Thursday. Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Jack Fischer will launch aboard the Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft and take a six-hour, four-orbit ride before docking to the Poisk module. The duo will begin a mission expected to last about 4-1/2 months.

Orbital ATK is getting ready to roll out its Cygnus spacecraft loaded with over 7,600 pounds science gear and crew supplies. Cygnus is scheduled to launch Tuesday at 11:11 a.m. and take a four-day delivery trip before being captured by the Canadarm2 and installed to the Unity module. A planned 360 degree TV viewing of the launch will be provided for the first time by NASA.
