Pope Benedicts Calls the Space Shuttle

This is cool, B16 calls the astronauts on the Space Shuttle.

I don't remember hearing about a call made by the Pope to the Space Shuttle or Space Station before.

Anyway, kind of funny the way the media is headlining this as "Pope Benedict Makes 1st Heavenly Call".

Oh brother...

Pope Benedict XVI Makes 1st Heavenly Call to Astronauts in Space

In a first for The Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI called to the heavens on Saturday -- but instead of reaching God, he spoke to two Italian astronauts and their 10 colleagues working on board the International Space Station (ISS).
"Dear astronauts, I am very happy to have this extraordinary opportunity to converse with you during your mission and especially grateful to be able to speak to so many of you as both crews are present on the space station at this time," said the Pope, reading in English from prepared remarks.
