8:38 am
phe said yeah, it's possible. pwe have to develop the ptechnology. pbut in theory, this could phappen. pand they'd been astronauts would pbe in space for three days pversus six months. pwhich obviously make a huge pdifference on their bodies. pevery day we're learning psomething more and more. p8:38. pand a pretty start to the day. plook how gorgeous it is on brook pdale bay shore camera at this parea. plook at all temperatures gone up pto 60s so far. pbrandon is at 63. papollo beach, tampa, st. etersburg, all in the 60s. precovering nicely up in crystal priver where they are back up pinto the mid 50s. pnear 60 degrees in sarasota. pit is 60 from bradenton to plakewood ranch. pand 61 in sebring. lus frostproof. pso how fast it warming up with pdrier air just kind of settling pin place. pyou got dew points near 50. pwhich very, very comfortable. pand even as we get our high ptemperatures to go up to the mid
