Astronaut sends wife flowers from space via the Internet

In the first month that astronauts aboard the International Space Station have access to the Internet, it appears they are using it much like the rest of us.

Commander Jeff Williams is on his third mission in space, and quickly embraced having Web access. He keeps in touch with his wife, Anna-Marie, by e-mail messages and recently sent her flowers via Amazon.com, according to a report on CBS.

Check out this report that ran on the CBS Evening News.
