Soviets in Antarctica

2011 Patrol, The Higgs Bison Super Collider, formally known as, the Orange and Silver Pumpkin Coach.

2013 Black Retro, Chernaya Krasota, formally known as, my name is nobody.

When you set out on your journey to Ithaca
pray the road is long , full of adventure, full of knowledge
not expecting that Ithaca will offer you riches
Ithaca has given you the beautiful voyage

Thanks, Dennis!

Incredible...they were compared to cosmonauts. I remember most of it watching on TV news, programs and seeing in science magazines:

Of course I was very young when this first came into being but I never knew anything about this as it progressed through the years, until yesterday. Which I find totally regrettably.
