Video: Towel Day on the International Space Station


In celebration of Towel Day, here is a fun video from the International Space Station. ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti reads from Douglas Adam’s “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” for towel day from the European laboratory Columbus on the International Space Station.

Towel Day is a yearly day to remember the great humorist Sci Fi Author, Douglas Adams, at the two week mark after his early death. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy of Five Books (yes that is how it is referred to even though there are Five books and not Three). Douglas Adams was a genius on telling a good story with tons of humor. He passed away at a very young age of 49.

“The Guide has a few things to say on the subject of towels. A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.”

Stay Geeky My Friends!
