Lost In Space: Astronaut Lost $100K Tool Bag during Spacewalk

If you've ever lost a bag, then you know how distressing it can be. All that stuff - gone! But take heart, at least you didn't lose a tool bag - in space - like Endeavour astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper did about last week.

The tool bag and its content are worth about $100K, and of course NASA got it on tape! I'm a little late on this news, but for those of you who haven't seen it, here's the clip:

sounds bogus to me chandrielle. First off the ISS is something like 250 miles from the ground so it would take quite some time to enter the atmosphere even if it was at a steep angle. Second, do you think the bag would survive re-entry and not spill the tools all over while whizzing through the air?
