ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Everybody say, "Hello," to Russian cosmonaut Yury Malenchenko. Hi, Yury!
I like this photo because he kind of reminds me of one of those Japanese lucky cats.
Hello, and chimo.
Yes! A Maneki Neko!
A Russian cosmonaut? What’s next, French Champagne?
Quite a few cosmonauts were not from Russia but from other parts of the USSR and even other Soviet bloc countries.
No way, really?
Just a joke, which I stand by.
There seems to be a fine line between suit and vessel. Especially as the surroundings change from air to water to space.
You can see them on my vid:
Also say hello to Igor from “Young Frankenstein”, who’s trying to pull his foot for some reason.
