Description


Handwritten letter from Maksim Surayev while aboard the International Space Station and delivered to earth via the crew of STS-129. The letter, signed “Max,” one page, 5.75 x 8.25, postmarked November 24, 2009, addressed to his wife Suraeva Anna, in full: "Two months have passed since Launch and many events have already occurred. We have completed the HTV mission and undocked it, received a progress and the new MRM 2 module, and hosted the crew of STS-129. As usual, we have been very busy on board and that is why the time has flown by. I hope that the rest of our mission will go as well as it has gone so far, without any difficulties." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed by Surayev, who signs again on the reverse of the envelope, "Board IIS, M. Suraev." On September 30, 2009, Commander Surayev and the Soyuz TMA-16 crew launched from the Baikonour cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Once they arrived at the International Space Station, Surayev served as a Flight Engineer as a member of both the Expedition 21 and 22 crews. On March 18, 2010, after wrapping up a 167-day stay aboard the ISS, Surayev and Jeffrey Williams safely landed their Soyuz TMA-16 spacecraft on the steppes of Kazakhstan.
