This December, we'll celebrate 40 years of the Orlan spacesuit as it was used for the first time on board the Salyut 6 space station on Dec. 19, 1977 by Georgy Grechko and Yuri Romanenko.

I'm looking for some photos or footage of the Aug. 15, 1979 spacewalk during which the cosmonauts removed the KRT-10 antenna...

I am looking for photos of Gennady Padulka outside Mir on Mir-26. If anybody knows where to find a few photos from those EVAs, then it would be greatly appreciated.
