Swedes in space

We watched the space shuttle Discovery return to earth - landing in California, east of Los Angeles at the Edwards Air Force Base. It's a pretty impressive thing, the space shuttle. And I can't help but find it pretty impressive that among all these American astronauts is one Swede. Of all the countries in the world - there is a Swede on board. Christer Fugelsang did his second space trip on Discovery (and judging by the interviews after - it was his last). A day to feel proud to be an Swedish Alien in America.
