I think this is a missed opportunity. They really should have added Tron effects on their jumpsuits. If you’re going to imitate something, go all the way.
Actually, you know what would be really cool? A Tron shuttle retrospective. 
*Thinks*
Now I want to draw this, but I will probably fail horribly.

These posters will never not be The Best.

I love these posters.
I wonder if they put them on billboards, would more people get interested in the space program?

For father’s day:
Aleksandr Volkov helping his son Sergei Volkov to the launch pad. Sergei became the first second generation cosmonaut in 2008. Sergei is currently in space on his 2nd flight.

Another Soyuz tradition. This is the crew of Soyuz TMA-02M getting a blessing from the Russian Orthodox priest of Baikonur, Father Sergei. 
This is definitely a new tradition as the Soviet state was officially atheist.
