Thanks Ws and Steve :hatsoff:

Barry for some reason I am thinking an OG Wave may have made the trip to space :tu: not sure when or where I heard that though :dunno: :D

Yes, in fact one of the Astronauts on board of the ISS was a neighbor from Tim in Portland. He bought two Waves because he had two twins and wanted to give them a Wave each, when they grew up, that had been in space! So he carried both to the ISS.

Once there he made a video about how he repaired his watch with the Wave's drivers in microgravity.  8) He sent the video to Tim, who he had met on Earth years before that. The man was to be brought back to Earth with his Waves in the Challenger, but unfortunately that vessel exploded (we all remember that catastrophe  :'() and he had to wait a few months in space and finally was brought back in the Soyuz.

But the Soyuz was tiny and small (Tim visited the module reproduction on Earth and confirmed it was really tiny) and the astronaut was able to only bring one tool which he augmented would be useful in case of an emergency in re-entry or afterwards in landing.
Months later an Astronaut brought the other Wave back 
Nice bit of information TP :like: :tu:

Used the serrated blade on mine just now to cut the sponge in two so it’d be more comfortable washing my gym shaker


Dream. Wish. Leave nothing undone. Repeat.
