BABloggee Heather Steingruebl pointed out to me that the pilot for the upcoming Shuttle mission STS 124 is... Ken Ham!
[Looks furtively at calendar. Hmmm... not April 1. So this isn't a joke. Looks at picture of Ken Ham... phew!]
Yeah, it's not the Ken Ham goofball head of Answers in Genesis, it's astronaut Ken Ham, who apparently understands science. Or at least enough to steer the Shuttle.
