Orbiting Earth By Mail

Orbiting Earth By Mail, OnOrbit.com

Editor's note: I stumbled across this item on eBay today. It was titled "NASA Astronaut Scott Parazynski Mt. Everest Climb 2008". I bought it for 10 bucks. I asked Scott what he thought. He replied "That's amazing, and pretty humorous - especially since the photo is from Denali. I'd imagine the only way the cover creator could have found this photo is from OnOrbit.com/Everest - as it's a personal photo and not online anywhere else."

Geographic inaccuracies aside, it is most interesting that someone on the other side of the world thought enough of Scott's attempt on Everest to make note it in this way - and that this envelope would end up around the world in Minnesota being sold by someone who understands the nature of what Scott was trying to do and also followed Scott's progress on my website. More info and larger image.
