It’s Mongolian Independence Day today, so here’s Jügderdemidiin Gürragchaa, Mongolia’s only astronaut. He flew aboard Soyuz 39 with Vladimir Dzhanibekov to Salyut 6, for a total of 7 days in space in 1981. After Mongolian clan names were reinstated in 1996, he chose Sansar, space in Mongolian.

Vladimir Dzhanibekov writing ‘спасибо’ (thank you) on the Soyuz 39 capsule after landing. I’m not sure if this is still a tradition as I’ve only seen pictures of this in the 70’s and early 80’s, when the missions were shorter and cosmonauts more able to stand right after landing. (1981)

This blog turns 1 year old today! Thanks to everyone who enjoys this blog.

To celebrate, here are my favourite cosmonauts in no particular order.

Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Viktor Savinykh, crew of Soyuz T-13, wave goodbye at launch. It was the first Soyuz to dock to an inert station; Salyut 7 had been left empty for eight months because of a problem with the solar arrays. (1985)
