      Yes, it seems that even from Soviet times, service personnel with astronauts, after passing through quarantine and medical examination, always worked in masks. And press conferences generally went through the glass. Who needed extra bacilli in space. This is not an aircraft carrier that you can slow down in the port, but a crew to transport to the hospital.

                It was nice when the astronauts did not refuse to give an aktograph.
                The truth was very rare when somewhere in a hurry. They respected us soldiers. They were never rude, they were not sent by the forest. After flying, they came to the unit and talked about the flight, answered questions.
                I remember many interesting stories that officers told.

        And before Victory Day, it’s Radio Popov’s day (the whole world still uses radio!), And the year began with a celebration (in February) with the publication of Mendeleev’s article about his system, Pavlov with a dog, and also Michurin with an apple .. .

      До этого все пилотируемые полеты проводились на ракете-носителе "Союз-ФГ" с украинской системой управления. На "Союз-2.1а" установлена новая, полностью российская система управления.

      Well here are the goodies. The fruits of import substitution. There are also all Russian components, so as not to depend on anyone.
      Russian test cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin, in an interview with RIA Novosti, spoke about the main differences between the Soyuz-2.1a rocket and the Soyuz-FG. According to the expert, the new carrier, completely consisting of Russian components, technically surpasses its predecessor, partially consisting of elements of Ukrainian production.

      In particular, we are talking about an improved digital engine control system of the first and second stage, which is equipped with the Soyuz-2.1a medium rocket. The latter will allow to achieve the accuracy of height derivation with an error of not more than 5 kilometers. In turn, this indicator for Soyuz-FG using an analog system was up to plus or minus 42 km.

    On March 31, SpaceX starts with 4 astronauts - 3 amers and 1 Japanese.
    Because If there is traffic to the toilets, then you need to make them paid for amers! Let them spend their $$$ or going outside to a tree ....

        Do not be fooled. They pay for the toilet once — when they buy it, clean it for themselves, it’s not difficult to do there, everything is quite simple and modular, but when they are dumb and have questions about operation, they turn to the Russian crew for help or spare parts , our people never refuse, they can also give our impetus to indulge in the order of the general queue.

          Note maintenance and repair separately. We repair and clean
          The Americans only go to the toilet, everything else on the mastercard card.

            No. You're wrong and too literal laughing интерпретируете текст годового отчёта РКК. В понятие "обслуживание и ремонт" входит доставка расходников и зип-комплектов для туалета на станцию. А американские астронавты занимаются и чисткой и ремонтом, а вот если не справляются со вторым, то обращаются к нашим.

              Why would they do cleaning and repair if, under a contract, repairs and maintenance are outside of Roskosmos?

                then, that they are users of this equipment, respectively, if they crap, they clean it themselves, consumables are then loaded into their TGCs, and if they are broken and cannot be repaired, they will run to the service to Roscosmos or to the ISS RS in line.

    С почином российскую пилотируемую космонавтику на полностью отечественном "Союзе-2.1а"! И судя по времени, поздравляю со штатной стыковкой с МКС.
