"In my best Bruno Stachel: "Confirmed!" biggrin"
Not until you get out and cut the serial number out of the fuselage. You then have to go over to your C.O. and throw the fabric at his feet. THEN you say, "confirmed!"
"From our orbital vantage point, we observe an earth without borders, full of peace, beauty and magnificence, and we pray that humanity as a whole can imagine a borderless world as we see it, and strive to live as one in peace."
Astronaut William C. McCool RIP, January 29, 2003 - Space Shuttle Columbia
