Rocketry pioneer Fridrikh Tsander in a new postage stamp.
On August 9, 2012 the Russian Post issued a postage stamp devoted to the 125th birthday Anniversary of Fridrikh Tsander, a pioneer of rocketry and spaceflight in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. He designed the first liquid-fuelled rocket to be launched in the Soviet Union, GIRD-X, and made many important theoretical contributions to the road to space.

The stamp depicts a portrait showing Fridrikh Tsander and his model of winged rocket that he believed would be suitable for interplanetary flight.
The size of stamp is 42 X 30 millimeters.
The stamp is printed by sheets of 15 (3 X 5) stamps.
Total edition is 525 000 stamps (35 000 sheets).

U.S. and Japanese Astronauts performed a spacewalk.
On August 30, 2012 U.S. astronaut Sunita Williams and Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide performed almost a record long spacewalk outside the International Space Station (ISS), NASA reported. The spacewalkers spent 8 hours and 17 minutes in the outer space doing maintenance work on the ISS. The longest spacewalk of 8 hours and 56 minutes was made by U.S. astronauts Susan Helms and James Voss in 2001. Williams and Hoshide, however, failed to fulfill their task of installing a new Main Bus Switching Unit (MBSU) on the International Space Station’s s-zero truss as they had difficulties driving the bolts to secure the equipment.
