I don’t care what you say. Astronauts have balls of steel. They strap themselves onto a rocket, shit in a vacuum, and are risking death by space junk tonight.

Apparently a new external ammonia tank for the ISS is important enough to risk getting it by a part of an old European rocket. NASA says that the junk should be far enough away and I guess it doesn’t really matter. I mean, if the the old rocket is close enough to hit the astronaut spacewalking, then it’s close enough to hit the actual station and therefore killing everyone aboard in a Moonraker-fashion.
