"The news from Earth that morning wasn't good. Frank Culbertson would soon find that some of the day's pre-planned routine would be altered. As soon as he was told of the attacks, Culbertson checked to see when they would be passing over the east coast of the U.S. Discovering that this was only some minutes away, Culbertson grabbed a camera. The window in Mikhail Tyurin's cabin turned out to be the one with the best view."

Keith's note: the only American not on Earth on 9/11 was Frank Culbertson. One would think that NASA would talk to him on this anniversary. He may be busy. He may wish to observe this event in his own way. That said, it is odd that NASA PAO has been silent about this national remembrance tomorrow. This is what NASA did last year, FWIW.
