If you saw Leno last night he mentioned something that prevented half the world's population from watching: testicles.

Well, sure, but what about all the viewers from outer space? NASA broadcast TV coverage of the royal wedding live to the international space station where the crew watched it and sent a congratulatory message to the couple (and just think of how many Martians, little moon people, etc. enjoyed the broadcast too!).


Astronaut Paolo Nespoli wished Prince William and Kate Middleton good luck for the royal wedding from the International Space Station
