Astronaut's lost tool bag found floating in space


You may have heard last week, while withdrawing all your money from Citibank, that an astronaut lost her tool bag while performing a routine space walk. (Late night comics made jokes along the lines of, “Why does she need her pocketbook up there?”) Well, as luck would have, a “veteran space watcher” may have discovered the bag floating around space. In fact, if you’re in the northeast of the U.S. you may able to spot it, too, provided you have a decent telescope. I mean, what could be more exciting than combing the heavens for a bag?

ABC News has an un-embeddable video on its site of the bag streaking across. The first comment I say made me laugh, too: We can find a bag floating in space but we can’t find Osama bin Laden?
