So, this year's Eurovision contest, hosted in Russia, was on today. The start of the voting was announced by... the crew of the International Space Station. Or, more precisely, two of them, the Russian and Japanese ones. Presumably the US one wasn't allowed to participate due to the current toilet dispute. If it'd been a week later, there'd have been six people there, two of them actually European, but that's life.
Important space station facts learned: (1) It has a terrible camera. (2) The laptops were running Windows XP, presumably due to high licensing costs for Windows Vista Space Station Edition.
Also, the interval show largely involved a woman telling us that Russia is not in fact a totalitarian police state. That there had been high-profile police suppression of a gay rights march the same day was, perhaps, unfortunate.
We also learned that it was warm and sunny in Moscow today. Google Weather tells me that this was a blatant lie.
