astro_ben Today is the Birthday of Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko (Михапл Корниенко). Kornienko is a living legend in Spaceflight and Cosmonautics. He served in two backup crews, Expeditions 8 and 15, before being given the chance to blast off into space. That came onboard the Soyuz TMA-18 vehicle from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 2 April 2010. He spent six months on board the ISS as part of the expedition 23/24 crew. He performed one spacewalk during his time up on the station. After 2 Years, it was announced he was to be the Roscosmos representative on the Year In Space Mission. The mission joined the crew of expedition 43 and left to allow expedition 47 to begin. During his stay, he performed vital experiments in order to help humans cope with future long duration Spaceflight, such as a mission to Mars. He also performed one spacewalk, which he undertook with Gennady Padalka, during Expedition 44. The work of Kornienko has helped all of humanity break down the borders between us, both on Earth politically, and metaphorically on our way to the red planet. Godspeed Mikhail Kornienko!
Счастливого пути Михапл Корниенко!

I need some help! You all know I do Astronaut Birthday Segments, but I'd quite like to do "Patch of The Day" segments as well. I just want to know your thoughts about it. I would probably do only major birthdays and stop boring you with quotes from minor astronauts and do a patch of the day. Please comment any suggestions or DM me! I have Tumblr! Check me out In the link in my bio. Go on. You know you want to.

  •   lac2207 I don't think there are any "minor" astronauts. I won't find any information you post boring. It would be my choice to read it or not so please continue to post all 1mon

jake_burns Got a new set up. Had to change things up and keep it fresh. #thunder147hi #expedition8.1 #bonesstf loving it. Thanks @scotteskip for another awesome sesh. Even though you deleted the footy 4y
  •   jake_burns @jandrews272 yeah I almost always ride Indy hi's. in fact I'm riding a 8.5 krooked with Koston 149's now. Indy is the best. 3y
  •   jandrews272 Oh right cheers, you think indy high's are the same height as thunder high's? I normally ride indy lows but im tryna make a change 3y
  •   jake_burns @jandrews272 I think the Indy highs are a little taller. But if you get a forged baseplate it lowers them a bit and still has a very responsive turn. I'd recommend Indys over thunder. And I rode thunders for about 8 years and Indy for the last 7 years. Thunders are good but they never feel loose enough for me and the grind feels soft. I'd recommend Indy high hollows. You won't be disappointed. 3y
  •   jandrews272 I'll go with that then cheers bro !!! 3y
