If you've never seen this image before, it'd be hard to guess exactly what it is. But you might have guessed parts of it. Three hints:
- Today (April 28) is the 10th anniversary of the first space tourist flight by Dennis Tito.
- The Space Shuttle Endeavour is set to launch tomorrow.
- Water & chocolate.
It's a water bubble with candy trapped inside, floating freely on Endeavour. The photo was taken March 14, 2008. Astronaut Dominic Gorie, mission commander, holds a string near the bubble (see the full version below).
Check out also below a widely seen image of space shuttle Commander Loren J. Shriver pursuing floating chocolate-covered peanut M&M's on the aft flight deck of the shuttle Atlantis, with Earth in the background. It's an iconic image that reminds us how much fun it would be to go up there.
