Since the federal government has come to screeching halt, it appears NASA astronauts have taken second jobs as ghostbusters aboard the International Space Station. Astronaut Mike Hopkins posted this picture to his Twitter account this week, showing a spooky cloud just outside an ISS window. "Saw something launch into space today, " Hopkins wrote on Twitter. "Not sure what it was but the cloud it left behind was pretty amazing." A writer at io9.com contacted NASA about the sighting, but received no response (due to the government shutdown). Sources unaffiliated with the U.S. government indicate it might have been caused by a rocket launch in Kazakhstan. Our money is still on a ghost fed up with Earth's goings on, but we'll wait for official confirmation of that theory. [Source]
