The post has been updated to remove references to "photographic
images" and "dedicated to the life and work of the first cosmonaut
Now all that remains is a reference to a school contact in Russia on the 23rd.
Looks like I and maybe R4UAB jumped the gun in discussing that.
Anyway, there has been talk of an ISS SSTV event at the end of this
month, so maybe the 29th is the weekend it will happen.
