Happy Birthday Nicole!

47 today — but how long is a day up there?

Story here.

NASA astronaut Nicole Stott, the newest member of the Atlantis crew, is celebrating her 47th birthday today aboard the International Space Station.

Stott, a Clearwater, Fla.-native and graduate of the University of Central Florida in Orlando and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, is finishing a three-month tour on the station.

She officially switched from the station’s Expedition 21 crew to the Atlantis crew after the shuttle docked Wednesday.
