Hello {!firstname},

At a recent pre-launch press conference, female Russian cosmonaut, Yelena Serova  was asked a question by a reporter.

Note, she was present at the conference with two male astronaut counterparts.

Here is the question she was asked:

"How will you manage your hair in space? Will you keep your current style?".

To which she responded:

"Can I ask a question, too: aren't you interested in the hair styles of my colleagues?" 

Imagine after seven years of training for this mission, to be asked an asinine question like this?


Now I don't know if the reporter who asked the question was male or female, but in either case| it's just a dumb question. 

It's tantamount  to asking a middle aged  male russian cosmonaut/astronaut, whether or not he's concerned about  whether he'll have an erection in space or not, first thing in the morning, and what was he going to do about it?

Nobodies gonna ask that one!

Seriously,  {!firstname}.

Clear Skies,


Ray Khan
