    There are no “astronauts” in Russia, mind you.

    There are Cosmonauts and here´s one of them.

      Yeah, astronauts walk on the moon.

      • Foraan says:

        Did they now, or was it a good Hollywood production?

        We´ll see when a COSMONAUT or Taikonaut land there to see the alleged remains…

      Wrong, every time NASA astronauts travel to Russia there are astronauts in Russia :)

      Russians can call them whatever they want while they’re there, but they work for NASA and NASA says they are astronauts.

        I’ll add that Japan officially designates their spacefarers as astronauts too. So this flight was actually one Russian cosmonaut alongside two astronauts from NASA and JAXA.

    Nice hats…

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

  4. Hirsh says:

    Nice recovery, but when will we finally learn the truth about the missing Cosmonauts?

  5. Hirsh says:

    Americans are astronauts, period. It doesn’t matter what country’s space vehicle they are traveling in. They are still astronauts.

    I saw them receive those hats on the NASA channel last week, pretty funny.
