Who wants to be a Cosmonaut? The size limitations to squeeze into that phone booth that is called a Soyuz is laughable. When are the Russians ever going to develop a booster to be able to launch anything other than a tincan?

They are one step past ESA. At least the tincan can soft land back on Earth!

OK. Maybe they should let the Oblablanauts in the ISS wait for the next commercial flight back home.

That's what happens when you throw away three good orbiters.

In 2013 it is a notable achievement to unfurl a flag in space?

Well, if you can't make it to the moon, just unfurl one randomly between the earth and moon.

They probably did it to conceal from the cameras the explosives they were mounting to the ESA Columbus module.

How do you know they're not the ones who sabotaged ours, so we wouldn't notice the explosives the put on the ESA Columbus module?

I suggest you fly your flag of convencience wherever those shuttles are now and show a nice display of fireworks for the Challenger and Columbia. Because size matters.

I guess that it is a bigger deal in 2013 than in 1969 in the eyes of wildhorse. :roll:

I think it was meant to be ironic. Plus the US flag was put on the moon, where there is gravity :P
