Russians do space walk…and launch a Nanosat

It pains me to credit the Russians with anything, but at least they can build a spacesuit that doesn’t fill will water.

Ruskies hand launching a Nanosat

Interesting that they launched a Nanosat by hand. Did they have to guess the vector and speed to release, or did it not matter for this satellite (I’m guessing not, since it’s a radio sat).

Update: Per this article,

The CubeSat includes children’s drawings which, as a message to extraterrestrial civilizations, will be broadcast into open space.

So alrighty then.
