in reply to The most unusual place I have logged into Perl Monks from is:

I wonder which of the 9 (as I write) Monks whose most exotic sites were on a Space Shuttle were lucky enough to have been able to get to PerlMonks from the Space Shuttle. (Or conversely, which 9 astronauts who've flown on the Shuttle are lucky enough to be Perl Monks.) I wonder how many Monks could get near an active Space Shuttle,

emc

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

    It only says logged in from a space shuttle... not necessarily from a space shuttle whilst in orbit.

      I never mentioned the Space Shuttle being in orbit at the time, either. I did, however, make the assumption that it was an active Shuttle, not one in a museum, where interested persons could climb all over it with few restrictions.

      I am quite aware that the set of people who have access to the Shuttle is much larger than the set of people who fly in the Shuttle.
