One Russian rocket used on Ukraine


Recommended Posts

We also have learned their robotic moon lander, LUNA-25 has crashed instead of landing on the moon.

Oh well.

 

I wonder if/when Vlad's health will take a turn for the worse?

You mean the "Russian Flu?"

It's those that disagree with Vlad who's health seems to take a turn for the worse unfortunately.

No fan of Russia or their previous state, but one story sticks in my mind.  Early in manned space flight, U.S discovered that ball point pens would not work in space.  Years and a young fortune later, the Fisher Space Pen came into being.  A wonderful achievement, and if you want one you can still buy one.  The Russians used pencils to solve the problem.

I understand that he avoids windows.

They did at first. The trouble with pencils is that they fade. After the Space Pen was invented, the Ruskies started using them too.

Urban myth, but a fun story nevertheless!  :)

 

And I often have a "Space Pen" clipped into my shirt pocket.  ^_^
