Yes, Venera-9 was launched from 81/24, Venera-10 was launched from 81/23.

Thank you anik and Stan, I've updated my list.

Kosmos 775 from 81/24

Thanks, it's corrected now.
And thank you for the link for Progress' tanks !

Anik, did you mean that launch pad 23 will never hoist any launch again?

Yes, I was told so. Launch pad 81/23 is for Proton-K launches only, and there will be only one Proton-K launch in future. It is very expensive to modernize this launch pad for Proton-M.

Are they still using building 92-1 for the assembly of Proton-K?

I have no information about the last Proton-K launch (28th february 2009), but the two earlier launches used MIK-92-1.

Hi folks, does anyone know what the final mass of Mir was before she was deorbited, not including docked Soyuz or Progress spacecraft? Thanks.

I can not identify these autographs. It is not Gagarin's autograph, it is not Titov's autograph. I doubt even that it is cosmonaut's autographs.

well i have no reason to doubt my dads aunt who got them for him back in the 1960's.

i have emailed an autograph dealer who specialises in cosmonaut autographs. he looked at the picture and said he believes them to genuine, he sent me this picture re gagarins autograph to show that he signed differently sometimes

http://www.astrocollection.com/main.php?g2_itemId=3441

god knows. i just wanted to know who it was ;-)

thanks for your help

he wants to buy them from me so is being rather coy about specifics- he has said the top signiture is gagarins thats why he sent me the link i posted above.

he has offered me 1000 via paypal tomorrow but i want to keep it. i just wanted to know who had signed it. i like the history of it!

i think ill email a few other autograph specialists and get further information!

thank you for your help! and if you are a spartak moscow fan then enjoy aiden mcgeady he is a great player!

It is not Gagarin's autograph. I am sure. The first letter of this autograph is not G (Russian "Г"), but V (Russian "В").

Yes, it is very good idea.

if you are a spartak moscow fan then enjoy aiden mcgeady he is a great player!

Yes, I am Spartak's fan, thanks.

thank you again!

did you look at that link? gagarins autograph was in 2 parts- the 2nd part was identicle to the first autograph on the card i have.

you are probably correct but i am passing on the information this dealer told me! dont take this the wrong way but i hope you are wrong and he is right;-)

mcgeady is an excellent player, i will keep an eye on your results and hope he does well for you!
