Precisions on Soap bubbles

HI to all

I was involve in numerous copy paste operations latetly! To be clearer as i read  Don Pettit comment with 
a touch of humour "I prefer to do 'Saturday Morning Science'--fun experiments of my own design." i wrote 
on the same tone " Hamming seems not to be their best past time. Making soap bubbles seems to be" 
I'ts pure humour...nothing else...period. Dont make me telling anything else.

1- Crew 6 is not an ham crew from an activity level standpoint as crew 5 (Thank's Cmdr Korzun) was.
2- Crew 6 is not an ham crew...............................................as Suzan Helms crew was.(remember field 

Don Pettit also said in this article ""Saturday is when we have a bit of free time," Pettit says. Some of the 
crew read books, play musical instruments or watch movies" For this crew hamming seems not to be 
their main hobby in their spare times. They concentrate on ARISS contact's even on week if needed i just 
learn.AND this fine that's their own...business.

Science experiments

Tto reduce the paranoia level i never comment that matter (sciience experiments)  when i said "making 
soap bubbles seems to be" i was refering to the fact that they prefer doing something else than good plain 
QSO'S over the air or switching the TNC and radio on. I should probably better wrote "reading books or 
listening musical pieces instead or experimenting on scientific water film" but i copy the way it was written 
in the article "A few Saturdays ago, he had his heart set on bubbles"


When i said  "It's a shame that ARISS money and equipments cannot be more usefull " i refer to this 
material in a so special place that off time dont maximized the investment" PERIOD.

This was until Arthur send me this:

Luc - to the best of my knowledge the TNC has seen its days and is no
longer in condition to operate. Radiation has gotten the best of it. Even
those they have free time
packet does not seem to interest the crew, even if they do have
callsigns. Cmdr. Kurzon has spoiled us all, as he did on MIR. I had many
conversations with him from my home location as well as Florida. Maybe
some day he will return. Arthur N1ORC

That's at least a good news... because the old saying no news good news does not stand here i prefer to 
know instead of guessing and be frustrated plus  theses situations increased my paranoia level...HI

Sorry for the bandwith my bubbles makes. Their bubbles last for one day someone said hope my ones 
blew up soon.

OK i concluded:
1-Yes the science experiments are usefull
2-Yes they can do what they want up there in their spare times
3-Yes i should not said that they where playing with soap bubbles
4-Yes i should not not called soap bubbles soap bubbles
5-Yes i should give them a break

And so on, but to make a long story short i at least learn that the TNC is probably dead, kaput, fini, i will 
sleep better tonight.

BTW i answer back all my personnal message sorry for those who received rude comments i try to 
anxwer back on the same tone...with humour! Are we not needed some in our present time period?

Signed...bubbles...i cannot resist :)
