NY Times: "Brazil's Man in Space: A Mere 'Hitchhiker,' or a Hero?"
I particularly enjoyed the photo of Pontes in a zero-G airplane
flight, captioned "Col. Marcos Pontes in antigravity training."
Way to go, NY Times 'space experts'.
By the way -- regarding my question at launch, has anybody
heard any mention by Pontes or any other Brazlian commentators
about any commemoration of the workers killed in the rocket
disaster at Alcantara? Or was that event too much of a
"downer" to mention on this mission?
