Since John wrote a song about this and there are tons of nerds on this board anyway, I thought this might be of interest to some:

What is it about prayers in space that I find so compelling?

Two pages will be displayed. One contains notes written by Ramon, and the other is a copy of the Kiddush prayer, a blessing over wine that Jews recite on the Sabbath. Zalmona said Ramon copied the prayer into his diary so he could recite it on the space shuttle and have the blessing broadcast to Earth.
