Astronaut Souichi Noguchiis Twitpic-ing his way in orbit, sharing his photos on one of them there social-media things.

Noguchi is a Japanese astronaut and is up on the International Space Station until May, so it's not like he's got anything better to do.

Here's a shot of Port-au-Prince, three weeks after the earthquake.

Noguchi doesn't seem to have taken any shots of Houston yet. Still, it might make sense to wave, just in case, whenever the ISS

crosses our sky


Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
