Great pictures! Not sure the cables should be glowing in the dark like that though...power cables overheating? ;)

Joule Heating : also known as ohmic heating and resistive heating, is the process by which the passage of an electric current through a conductor releases heat.

Electric current : Kelling's power supply -> Rog's heater
Conductor : Rog's coiled up extension heater

Not sure Si, we had very little wifi so were a bit hit and miss on our ISS pass times, every time we expected it and waited we didn't see it, so if it was (in the image) it wasn't a planned observation

You missed a good weekend there Simon, hopefully we will all be at the next
