Has anybody seen pictures of Yuri during the wedding? All the ones I've seen have been from the ground. And after all the reports talking about how he had a coat brought up to ISS for the occassion, all the stories yesterday said he just wore the bow tie and flight suit. Kind of odd.

Good for them! I'm glad they did do it anyway. Another odd but interesting historical moment for the space program.

Congratulations to both of them, another "first" in space, and a bit of needed publicity.

Haven't seen a mention or photo of the wedding on the NASA or Energiya sites yet. Guess the grumpy old fuddy-duddies in Management are going to ignore it.

Katie Couric of the TODAY show interviewed the bride and the wedding planner yesterday in the NY studio. So Ekaterina has quite a press tour going on right now.

I am beginning to wonder if the wedding was for true love or a publicity stunt.

Indeed marriages are private business. Neither the ceremony nor the exercise of marital duties are something space agencies pay for, nor the use of contraceptives, whether they are of medical nature, or simply by physical distance between the partners. Have you seen NASA care about any other marriages of their astronaut employees, or how and when they were organized?

Well, none of them took place in space! And NASA did make a big fuss about Ed Lu's birthday (heaps of photos in the ISS gallery with those silly Hawaiian shirts), but no mention of the wedding. Seems a bit churlish.
