Weightless Bear!

March 7, 2011

Floating around inside the International Space Station!

The Blue-eyed Bear was having so much fun floating around inside the ISS that she almost didn’t make it back on board Discovery before the hatches were closed and Discovery disconnected from the International Space Station. But the BE Bear did make it back on board in the nick of time while the crew was saying their goodbyes.

Moving in Zero-G the BE Bear found it helpful to push off and then hold all her extremities in so she wouldn’t accidentally catch a claw on all the wires and equipment sticking out everywhere. Human handholds don’t always work for bears!

The BE Bear says goodbye to the ISS. It a fabulous place to visit, but not a home for our bear!
