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

      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.
