That's one small tweet for man, one giant tweet for mankind.

Quote: "Hello Twitterverse! We r now LIVE tweeting from the International Space Station -- the 1st live tweet from Space! (cont)"

Cool, but not so sure about the claim. Jose Hernandez ( was twatting from "Space" during the last Discovery mission in September.

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
