I feel very lucky to have his autograph and photo. Rest in peace, Cosmonaut Kubasov.

I have a video of a mission with Dale Gardner in it (51A) that I show as part of the presentation that I do, and people love it. It's the best part of my presentation. Rest in peace.

Joe Allen took some phenomenal photos on his flights using natural light. I love the pic above of Gardner from 51A.

Great tribute, Ed!

It was an honor to meet Valery in San Antonio in 2005!

Interesting Soviet made camera that Kubasov has in his hands.

A cS reader notes that the camera is a Kiev FK6, which was designed specifically for use on the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project.

On edit: An additional website in Russian about the Kiev FK6 camera.
