An Accidental Space Record 

So he’s got that going for him.

NASA astronaut Frank Rubio was supposed to spend six months in space. Things did not quite work out that way, with Rubio’s return delayed by half a year. I’ve been finding myself alternating between horror and bemusement at how that might have played out.

  • “Well folks, I’m excited to be coming home next week! Oh…what’s…no? A delay? Huh, OK. Well, how long, a day or two? Oh. Oh I see.”

When Rubio comes home later this month, he’ll at least have earned a new American space record.
