    Which part of Russia is going to be ideal for landing cosmonauts? I heard Kazakhstan is used as landing site during Soviet times and until now because of its vast steppes. But how about in Russia?

    Best place to land after months in space would be at the finest bordello in all of Russias. What? A man must satisfy some urges somehow Twisted Evil

    The landing area for the new space station on a different orbit will be different... it is probably rather useful that they are expanding rail networks to the north and far east of Russia as well as building airfields around the place too...

    The direction of return might change radically and make Russian landing areas more desirable.

    BTW, regarding what they want when they come back down I would think some peace and quiet and not having to do things all the time would be at the top of their list... while on the space station they would each have fairly full rosters of jobs that need to be done and the constant sound of fans blowing air around the place would probably become annoying very quickly...

    I would probably be playing with my TB-82... launching flares and shooting the local wildlife... Smile

    ... if they are still using it of course...
