Taking a break from the Internet for a day or so, because lately my face is like this every time I go online.
See you all on the flip side.

Alexei Leonov isn’t the only artist cosmonaut, Vladimir Dzhanibekov paints too. This one’s pretty epic. 

Girlz he paints too

Jell-O: An Easter Treat in Space

On May 19, 1996, astronaut Shannon Lucid wrote “a letter home" from the Russian space station Mir, discussing an Easter treat that became a weekly tradition for Lucid and her cosmonaut space-mates:

Here it is, another Sunday on Mir!!! And how, you might ask, do I know that it’s Sunday? Easy!!! I have on my pink socks and Yuri, Yury, and I have just finished sharing a bag of Jell-O!!!

When light follows darkness every 45 minutes, it is important that I have simple ways of marking the passage of time. The pink socks were found on STS-76 and Kevin, the commander, said that they were obviously put on as a surprise for me, so I took them with me over to Mir and decided to wear them on Sundays.

And the Jell-O? It is the greatest improvement in spaceflight since my first flight over 10 years ago. When I found out that there was a refrigerator onboard Mir, I asked the food folks at JSC if they could put Jell-O in a drink bag. Once aboard Mir, we could just add hot water, put the bag in the refrigerator and, later, have a great treat. Well, the food folks did just that and sent a variety of flavors with me to try out. We tried the Jell-O first as a special treat for Easter. It was so great that we decided the Mir-21/ NASA-2 crew tradition would be to share a bag of Jell-O every Sunday night. (Every once in a while, Yuri will come up to me and say, “Isn’t today Sunday?” and I will say “No, it’s not. No Jell-O tonight!!!”)

"Hey, Deke. True story. I was born on the evening of April 3rd, 1926. That just happened to be the night before Easter Sunday. The Easter Bunny personally delivered me to my house. Me and him, we go a long way back.”
"Gus, are you telling me this so that you can keep the baby rabbit for yourself?"
"Yes."
"It isn’t happening."

Aighhhhhhhhhhh
