Epic spacewalk, epic FAIL: Cosmonauts point new antenna in the wrong direction


Direction does matter.

If the antenna is high-gain, as the article says, it is basically uni-directional. If it is not aimed at the Earth as it is supposed to be, it will not function well at all. I think NASA just didn't want to make the cosmonauts look stupid.
