Médecins Sans Poids


I know it's a longshot, but if Marty Peretz ever gets a seat on the space ark, and he needs an operation for his Tourette's, he'll just have to take back all those anti-French jokes he's been making. Félicitations to Dr. Dominique Martin, who has performed the first surgery in zero gravity. Details of the procedure, which is a little less impressive than it sounds (they were in an Airbus doing parabolas and took breaks between weightless periods; also they only had to remove a cyst from a guy's arm) here.
