ASTRONAUT BRUCE McCANDLESS:  Hey, can anyone hear me?
SHUTTLE COMMANDER:  Roger, go for Challenger.
McCANDLESS:  Can you open the bay doors, please?
COMMANDER:  Who is this?
McCANDLESS:  It’s McCandless, sir.  I, um, misfired the Manned Maneuvering Unit again.
COMMANDER  (looking out viewport):  "Misfired"?  Are you kidding me?
McCANDLESS:  No sir.  (Waves.)  I’m all the way out, sir.  About 320 feet.
COMMANDER:  Sigh.  Okay, hang on.  Lemme snap a photo first.
McCANDLESS:  Okay.  I’ll just wait, I guess.  (Whistles.)
COMMANDER:  Is that the theme to Star Trek, son?
McCANDLESS:  Yes, sir.  Sorry, sir.
