An Open Letter to Wikipedia About Its Active Astronaut Pages

by Amy Lindorff

Dear Wikipedia,

Have you ever thought about having a special section for active astronaut pages that provides information on where they are at this moment? Like maybe under “Other occupation” it could say “Current location.” Potential answers could be “Earth” or “ISS” or even “En route to Mars” (I’m thinking ahead for you, here).

I think this could be a really great way to make your astronaut content even more great. I mean, if a human being is in space, I would love to know as much as possible about it. Because, okay sure – no one is walking around on the moon right now (that we know of at least!), but anyone doing anything in space sounds cool to me.

Let me know what you think.

Love, Amy
