STS-108 Mission Specialist Dan TaniThe sense of speed on the spacewalk was great. You can see the ground going by at 17,000 miles an hour and -- just like in the shuttle -- I'm really surprised how quickly we go from day to night. It happens over a 10- or 15-second period, and that really accentuates the sense of speed.

Dan Tani,
STS-108 Mission Specialist
