    Hi All,
    
    With Discovery safe and sound back home , its back to business as usual for 
    the crew of ISS and as the UK sizzled in 36 degrees of wall to wall sunshine 
    the station zipped across the sun.
    ( 36 Deg C on the OTA after 30 minutes set up time )
    
    Again , slight breeze and tube currents took their toll on stability , but 
    the basic shape of ISS was clearly observed.
