I was 9 years old today. At least for the couple of hours I was visiting the fantastic Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics in Moscow. I touched the Moon (ok, a piece of it), looked at a stuffed Laika and inspected the inside of a 1:1 model of the space station MIR.
It seems especially startling, when you stand right next to an excact copy, that mankind has been able to land something like a refrigerator-sized ball of steel on the Moon, and acually making it say “Hello world”.
One really cool dimension of the museum is the display of cosmonautic fashion – not just the space suits – impressive in all their technicality – but also the more day-to-day-like clothes that cosmonauts have been wearing inside the cabins during missions.
Now i’m thinking, that since it’s been 500 years since we discovered life on other continents, it should be kind of statiscally unthinkable, that we won’t discover life on other planets within our lifetime. So, why not dress well?
