Fyodor Yurchikhin

Glad you enjoyed it.

Col. Wheelock mentioned the photography of his crewmate Fyodor Yurchikhin in the recording. Yurchikhin had an exhibition of his space photography at the Moscow Palace of Culture in April 2010. Photos that he took during his space flights in 2002 and 2007 were on display. A Russian description of the exhibition can be seen here:

The Russian Federal Space Agency has some photo galleries of Yurchikhin's space photography called "Our Home: The Earth" here (the pages are in Russian, but you can still enjoy the photos):

One thing I noticed is that if you click the "English" link at the top of the page, then the above links don't work (English versions of the pages apparently don't exist), so if you do that, click the "Russian" link and then you should be able to go to the two links above.
