It's that time of year, everyone needs at least 12 good calendars to hang all over the house, right? Okay, maybe that's just me. Annual Release
If you have Adobe Acrobat and glossy card stock, you can download (7MB PDF) and print the official 2011 International Space Station Calendar, that describes the work conducted on the ISS. The TJ Creamer groupies and the Garrett Reisman Fan Club will be particularly enthused this year about the "life as an astronaut" photo collections! There are amazing views from the Cupola in this year's edition, and for the first time I can recall, NBL training and Dynamic Posturography!

(Yes, there really is a Garrett Reisman Fan Club.)
