Relics in Space


Russian Cosmonaut Maksim Suraev wrote on his blog that the Russian side of the International Space Station houses four icons, a large cross, and the Gospels. A recent post included photos of icons and crucifixes floating in zero gravity.

Relics have been on previous spaceflights -- for example, U.S. astronaut Ronald Garan brought a relic of St. Therese of Lisieux with him on the space shuttle Discovery in 2008.
