Last Saturday, the Olympic torch was taken to space by 2 Russian cosmonauts. What’s funny is that the torch won’t be lit “for safety reasons.” The walk was broadcast in Times Square. The purpose of the space walk was to show that Russia is still fully capable, even with older Soviet technology, of being on the cutting edge of space discoveries.
