(29 March 2013) --- Expedition 35 Commander Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency, whose stretched-out arm can be seen at upper left, was expecting to see NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy float into this scene in the Poisk or Mini-Research Module 2 (MRM2), but he might have been somewhat surprised to see the exaggerated mustache which Cassidy was sporting. Cosmonaut and Expedition 35 Flight Engineer Roman Romanenko is at right. Cassidy and two crewmates had earlier arrived at the orbital outpost by way of the Soyuz TMA-08M spacecraft. One would imagine that Hadfield, who has a real mustache, likely checked out the one on Cassidy. Credit: NASA
