At the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, Expedition 34/35 Soyuz Commander Roman Romanenko (center) holds a toy “talisman” that his 9-year old daughter, Anastasia, gave him to hang over his seat in the Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft as a zero-G indicator during launch with his crewmates, Flight Engineer Tom Marshburn of NASA (left) and Flight Engineer Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency (right). The toy, named “Klyopa” for the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, was unveiled during a “fit check” dress rehearsal Dec. 7, 2012 in Baikonur leading to the crew’s launch Dec. 19 for a five-month mission on the International Space Station.
