Anybody know A) What the Soyuz callsign is, and B) What the Soyuz mascot is?
Wasn't this the same callsign that Shonin used on his Soyuz-6 flight?
The last question was about DM-03 upper stage's next flight and Vladimir Popovkin has answered on it, but the microphone was turned off.
Dear friends of #ESA, the special timing was rather a coincidence... but this mysterious trail was seen on 24 December evening over the skies of central Germany and parts of N-France, Belgium, N-CH, etc. To be clear: It was a used #Soyuz upper stage that burnt up in the high atmosphere. On 21 Dec., the launcher had successfully brought our André #Kuipers into orbit...! :-)
Some photo's from Andre Kuipers during the ride to ISS..
