4-20-2009, John O'Hurley stopped in for an interview on one of our stations and graciously posed for pictures. He was in Anchorage playing King Arthur in the musical Monty Python's Spamalot. And we will always remember him as J. Peterman from Seinfeld and those GCI commercials.

It looks like the new movie GRAVITY is seeing some out of this world box office success. Way to go, Sandra B. and George C.! I will be seeing it probably tonight or tomorrow (avoiding weekend crowds).
But being a space buff, I can tell you right now that as sharp and exciting as the movie is, micro gravity comes with it's share of mundane tasks and routines. Take, for example, how Sandra Bullock would have to wash her hair.
Well, at least she could get wavey, voluminous hair without needing conditioner. Kind of gives new meaning to the phrase, "letting your hair down," doesn't it?
Here's one of former ISS Commander Chris Hadfield having some fun draining an oxygen mask's expired tank.
FYI: If you haven't seen the movie Gravity yet...
Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction (I hope that doesn't spoil the movie for you). Okay...on to the video.
Yes, an open oxygen tank can act as a means of propulsion in the International Space Station if you're not secured to something.
So, what do Alaskans have in common with astronauts working in zero gravity? You've got to have ANCHORAGE.
