    Hopefully not to far off topic but....the other day I took my 9th grade
    basic science class to a showing of the Space Station in an IMAX theater. It
    was the best NASA promo I could ever have hoped to see. I don't know about
    the kids but I loved every second of it! Hope I can find it on video.
    Anyway, one of the shots showed two astronauts handling a paper map while
    trying to figure out what part of the earth they were over. I suppose they
    wouldn't have much time to make a determination. Now the map thing got me
    thinking. Would it be possible to use a GPS receiver in the ISS? Probably
    not I suppose.
