С НОВЫМ ГОДОМ! -- Happy New Year from Space

The International Space Station has been in the news a lot this week. International Space Station Expedition 38 Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) began a planned 7-hour spacewalk from the Earth-facing Pirs Docking Compartment at 8 a.m. EST today.

This postcard is a Soviet Russian New Year postcard from 1981. It has an artist's conception of a young astronaut and a rabbit companion delivering New Year greetings from space.


  1. I love the Soviet era cards and have been avidly following the ISS - so this is a great combination!

  2. What a wonderful postcard! I love the bright colors and am charmed by the idea of snow in outer space. Yes, I've been following all the action at the International Space Station. This is just perfect!

    Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
