Last night, Wisconsin Public Television aired a NOVA documentary about the woes of the Russian space station MIR. During a power failure, virtually everything on the station had to be shut down. The interesting thing is that several astronauts recalled vividly the peculiar auditory sensations that occurred under this condition. One astronaut described the sensation as the "deafening sound of silence" and also added that his ears "hurt." Cheers, Daniel J.
