My boys are going to be so excited when they see this! Regarding what the "wannabe astronaut" said in the previous comment, rather than making me feel sad that someone Orthodox might forgo his opportunity for spaceflight so he can light his Chanukiah (which would actually be so cool and inspirational to others, I think), it made me appreciative of being able to light our menorah this year with no barrier of any kind!

I am saddened by this video. Were he an orthodox jew he would have had to give up his once in a lifetime chance to fly into space in order to light a few candles for 10 minutes in the evening down on earth.

Channukkah in outer space
This site and ALL on it is a wonderful, delightful, insightful and miraculous creative effort that should be shown and enjoyed on cable tv worldwide!!! Not just the 8 days of Channukkah and Miracles, ALL you do throughout the year! Thank you and G-d Bless!

The video display of America's enthusiasm to display the lights of Chanuka on board the Endevour is heartwarming. It is not everyday that an astronaut has the opportunity to display a spiritual light in the deepest physical darkness of space.
NASA's openmindedness toward space travel assists in providing awareness to the multidimensional universe that we live in. So too the light of the menorah is for all to see, and better still - in times of spiritual darkness.
