    “space float” sounds under dramtic and, well, lazy. Walking is active, floating is what you do in a pool.

    In NASA Official-speak it’s still EVA – extra vehicular activity. Shame EVA never caught on in the public mind.

    EVA I like.

    I was a space geek when I was a kid (had my own model Saturn V), so you think I would have remembered that.

    Getting old is a crime. Or a shame. Or something like that. ;)

    Space geek?

    Space Camp, Space Academy, Space Academy II, and Aviation Challenge. Such were my younger days….

    And now, Owen, you’re in Wiscnsin. Yes, aviation, we’ve got that. But it’s a long way from the Space Coast in Florida or the Mojave. Or even Seattle.

    *sigh*

    My ambition was to be a Navy Pilot. Life intervened.

    Man, I hope your call sign was going to be Saber. I don’t think I could handle a naval aviator called Boots. ;)

    I don’t think I could handle a naval aviator called Boots.

    But how cool if his wingman’s call sign was ‘Puss’.

    I don’t need to belabor that pun, I think.
