Does that baby blue (oxygen?) filling station take credit cards or is it cash only :)

Hmm, the Russians are putting advertisements on the Soyuz rocket again. This time they are promoting the 16th FINA swimming World Championships, to be held in Kazan in 2015. A cylinder carrying water from the Kazanka river (which flows through the city) will also fly to the ISS as a souvenir.  :P
