Today I received a nice photo

Today I received a nice photo from Matthias Bopp DD1US from Germany who meet Cel Doug Wheelock last week.

“Today I had the pleasure to meet Dough Wheelock NA1SS in person.
I was able to attend a small gathering of 20 people (friends and family)
in the Technik Museum in Speyer. It was really fun and we also talked about the many contacts he had with you and the birthday song.
He asked me to say hello to you !


For this I want to thank Matthias and share with IFC friends the photos:   https://picasaweb.google.com/fabianomoser/ISS#5619282999254209010                https://picasaweb.google.com/fabianomoser/ISS#5619282533141569810                                                          73

Saturday morning, at 13:38Z, I managed to receive a fairly decent SSTV picture from ARTSSat-1 with my meager setup. My technique is to hook up the transceiver to MMSSTV, set the levels to what I think might be optimum, and go top bed and leave the xcvr and computer running. I received this while I was still asleep! Here is the pix:

Fyodor Yurchikhin

Glad you enjoyed it.

Col. Wheelock mentioned the photography of his crewmate Fyodor Yurchikhin in the recording. Yurchikhin had an exhibition of his space photography at the Moscow Palace of Culture in April 2010. Photos that he took during his space flights in 2002 and 2007 were on display. A Russian description of the exhibition can be seen here:


The Russian Federal Space Agency has some photo galleries of Yurchikhin’s space photography called “Our Home: The Earth” here (the pages are in Russian, but you can still enjoy the photos):

http://www.federalspace.ru/main.php?id=224 (Expedition 15)
http://www.federalspace.ru/main.php?id=225 (Expedition 24/25)

One thing I noticed is that if you click the “English” link at the top of the page, then the above links don’t work (English versions of the pages apparently don’t exist), so if you do that, click the “Russian” link and then you should be able to go to the two links above.
