Gennadi Padalka «Greeting and Fruits from board of ISS» 2004.
Gennadi Padalka, ISS-9 expedition commander, note the black and white portrait behind him is Konstantin Tsiolkovsky. On May 29, 2004 our good friend, ISS-9 expedition commander Gennadi Padalka sent a great picture of him with fruits on board of International Space Station. Over the telephone conversation the same day Gennadiy also mentioned that the smell of fresh fruits and food arrived a day ago aboard Progress ship is very special, a great smell of Earth. It`s a great honour to get a friendship note typed by Gennadiy on board and also great to see him well, happy and smiling far above the Earth in Cosmos.
