Even in Space, Cosmonauts Can’t Dodge the Census Takers

International Space Station

Via Roscosmos PAO:

This evening, on Oct. 18, Rosstat experts will come to the Mission Control Center to make poll of the Russian cosmonauts working in the International Space Station. ISS-25 crew members Alexander Kaleri, Oleg Skripochka and Fiodor Urchikhin will answer the questions of the form sheets to take part in the national Population Census which is run in Russia on Oct. 14-25. This will be the second time for flight engineer Urchikhin to fill the forms of the Census from orbit. He was involved in a similar procedure during his space mission in 2002.
