Default Olympic history unfolded

"Olympic history unfolded outside the International Space Station Saturday morning (Nov. 9) as two Russian cosmonauts carried an unlit Olympic torch on a symbolic spacewalk relay for the 2014 Games."

Maybe they could have passed around a dead raccoon instead and claimed it was the first raccoon in space. I think that would be far more interesting than a dead torch.

I'd rather see the Olympic flame make news by being the cause of the biggest wild fire in CA or see it burn down 1/2 of the Brazil rain forest than to see it not lit in,of all places, outer space.

What the heck am I missing here??????
