Underwear for Outer Space



Anousheh Ansari is back after 10 days of spacefaring, and everyone is celebrating in their own way. Take the Russians, for example. One headline says it all: Space triumph prompts new line in underwear.

A Russian firm had recently begun producing custom-made underwear embroidered with the emblem of the mission. And a surprise has been prepared on Earth for the charming female tourist Ansari: a set of underwear with original embroidery," ITAR-Tass reported. On the chest of the camisole is an embroidered figure of a woman made out of the logotype of the firm headed by the American businesswoman."

Also, Ansari reported on her blog that space smells like "burned almond cookie."
