Olympic Torch Space Walk was Successful

The Sochi 2014 Olympic Torch just completed the first ever space walk. NASA has tweeted photos and a short video of the historic event. Never before was space part of the Olympic torch route. The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia start on February 7, 2014. This is in 90 days.

On November 7, the Soyuz TMA-11M spacecraft took off from the Baikonur cosmodrome carrying crew members Koichi Wakata (Japan), Richard Mastracchio (USA) and commander Mikhail Tyurin (Russia) and the Olympic Torch to the International Space Station (ISS).

Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazan went out into open space, holding the Sochi 2014 Olympic Torch. The Olympic Torch spent more than an hour in open space.

The Olympic Torch will come back soon in the hands of cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, who along with the team that completed most of the work on board the ISS, will bring the Torch back to Earth on the Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft and hand it over to representatives of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee upon exiting the capsule.

The Torch will continue its route to the Cauldron in Fisht Olympic Stadium. Where it will be marking the start of the XXII Olympic Winter Games of 2014 in Sochi on February 7.

For some reason the torch is not burning? ;)

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
