Ah, makes sense. The Wolfram Alpha answer gave me the result I needed, but I was really after how to calculate it. Thanks.

It says the the density of the air is 0.001275 grams/cm^3 at 0C. Thats pretty cold.. it would be slightly larger at room temp. Any idea how much? :)

comment What does the sky look like to human eyes from orbit?
Well there's always spacewalks, and visors I'd think would be selected for good viewing.

Great answer, thank you :) I find it hard to believe that no astronaut has ever really written about the experience though (not that you said there isn't), I'm hoping someone still knows of one...

comment What does the sky look like to human eyes from orbit?
Thanks. I'm aware of all the effects the atmosphere has. Naturally the stars will be better from orbit, but what I'm really after is HOW MUCH better. Is it so much better that you'd never hope to see a similar starfield from Earth, or is it only marginally better than the best night viewing conditions on the surface? Would you barely notice the difference between the two, or is it 'stunningly' different? :) No one seems to know that. I'd think an astronaut would have given an account either way...

comment Optimal technique to tear perforated paper along the perforation
Excellent suggestion.. it's not so easy to do since it's so close to the binding though. I just tried it, and it was still a bit difficult to avoid tearing the page, so I think the question still stands...
