I'm actually going to try and just post the rest over the next week just go get them posted. My schedule as gotten so chaotic recently I just don't have time to jump online.

OK, lets get 2017 posted.

2017 saw four Soyuz MS missions launch which rotated four ISS crews. During 2017, we saw Russia reduce their ISS presence and we saw Peggy Whitson set a new U.S. career time in space record.

Personally, I really like the photo for the ISS-54 card. The crew is spending some relaxing time watching Star Wars. Here are the cards:

#417 ISS Expedition 51

#418 Soyuz MS-04

#419 ISS Expedition 52

#420 Soyuz MS-05

#421 ISS Expedition 53

#422 Soyuz MS-06

#423 ISS Expedition 54

#424 Soyuz MS-07

OK, I will post 2018 next!

Sorry guys. I have been so busy I just haven't had the time.

2018 saw four separate ISS expeditions including the first space mission commanded by a German. The Soyuz MS was launched four times in support of these expeditions but only made it safely to orbit three times. In addition, SpaceShipTwo made its first suborbital flight in 2018.

Here is 2018:

Personally, I love the "drum" on the ISS-55 card.

#425 ISS Expedition 55

#426 Soyuz MS-08

#427 ISS Expedition 56

#428 Soyuz MS-09

#429 ISS Expedition 57

#430 Soyuz MS-10

#431 Soyuz MS-11

#432 SpaceShipTwo Unity VP-03

#433 ISS Expedition 58

2019 will be next!

So, today will be my final "big" post of this project. I am going to post 2019 and everything for 2020 which has been completed. The way I planned on doing this is to release cards in numerical order once the missions are complete. That means up through ISS Expedition 62. I won't post the SpaceX Demo card until all the cards before it (Soyuz MS-16, and ISS-63) can be posted.

So, without further ado, here are the remaining cards:

#434 SpaceShipTwo Unity VF-01

#435 Soyuz MS-12

#436 ISS Expedition 59

#437 ISS Expedition 60

#438 Soyuz MS-13

#439 IDA-3

#440 Soyuz MS-15

#441 ISS Expedition 61

#442 ISS Expedition 62

So, that gets up to today. Shortly after the currently flying Soyuz MS-16 lands, I will post the next three cards. Those cards will be the following:

  • #443 Soyuz MS-16
  • #444 ISS Expedition 63
  • #445 SpaceX DM-2
After that, I will update the set as future missions conclude. I really hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed making it.

Congratulations — fantastic series.

Collectors and space enthusiasts will refer to this card series forever. They should bookmark this thread for future use.

Many, many thanks for the very interesting trading cards. Now I can create my books number 7 and 8.

So, with the landing of Soyuz MS-16 last night (or this morning based on where you are), I was able to finish a few more cards for this set. So, here they are:

#443 Soyuz MS-16

#444 ISS Expedition 63

#445 SpaceX DM-2

I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you very much for all of your research and hard work going into this wonderful project. I realise it is just digital and fully understand why, but can't help but feel how good it would be in physical form similar to Trivial Pursuit question card boxes. Very well done.

Sorry for the slow updates, life has been super busy the last few months and I got behind on this project. But, I just got it updated.

With the rise of commercial suborbital tourist flights, I have decided to only include those human flights up to the first operational flight. So, for SpaceShipTwo and the Blue Origin flights, I won't be making cards for each one.

Here are the cards to get us up to date. The first one is an updated card for the Pirs Module.

#275 Pirs (update)

#450 Soyuz MS-18

#451 ISS Expedition 65

#452 SpaceX Crew-2

#453 Tianhe Core Module

#454 SpaceShipTwo Flight 21

#455 Shenzhou 12

#456 SpaceShip Two Flight 22

#457 Blue Origin NS-16

#458 Nauka Module

#459 Inspiration4

OK, that gets us all up to date. I hope you enjoy them. I will post more in the future.

Fantastic job (as usual) on a year very crucial with the emergence of the first regular commercial flights.

Not to be picky or give you more work, but what about Soyuz MS-19 and MS-20? Will you include them later? (After the holidays, of course!) I also think NS-18 and NS-19 should also be considered because of William Shatner and Laura Shepard Churchley as noteworthy passengers, but that's just my 2-cents.

Thanks again for your outstanding work!

I'm doing cards in order from when the mission started. So, MS-19 and MS-20 will be included. Here is the list as I currently have it:
  • 460 Soyuz MS-19 (10/5/2021)
  • 461 Shenzhou-13 (10/15/2021)
  • 462 ISS-66 (10/17/2021)
  • 463 Prichal (11/25/2021)
  • 464 SpaceX Crew-3 (11/11/2021)
  • 465 Soyuz MS-20 (12/8/2021)
So, that's the plan but none of these cards are started yet. With MS-19 and MS-20 still in orbit I can't do much until they are back.

I had given some thought about NS-17 and NS-18 for the reasons mentioned above, but I sort of wonder where to stop it. I suspect we will see more and more of these flights in greater frequency as we move forward (from other companies as well.

I may do the Blue Origin flights, I'm not stuck into either position yet. NS-18 would be between MS-19 and Shenzhou 13. NS-19 would be after MS-20.

Two suggestions regarding the suborbital missions:
  1. You could follow what the FAA is doing, and only create cards for the flights that were awarded civilian astronaut wings (in other words, Unity 22, NS-16, NS-18 and NS-19); or

  2. You could stop, as you have, after the first human flight of each vehicle but then issue a special card each year which summarizes all of the flights of that year (e.g. number of people flown, notable passengers, notable records set, etc.); think of it like a chaser card.
A third option exists, too, and that is to do both — create cards up to NS-19 and then pick up with the yearly summary cards at the end of 2022.

Yes, I understand your take on Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic flights; they will (hopefully) become "routine," with nothing special or noteworthy participants as such, so maybe just a yearly "mission summaries" type of card would fit the bill.

I would also recommend Robert's point two suggestion.
