Angry Bird rockets into spa-a-a-a-ce!

Soyuz orbital insertion confirmation office on duty

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

When the Russian Soyuz TMA-22 successfully launched from Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome on Monday morning, its crew manifest listed NASA's Dan Burbank and Roscosmos' Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoly Ivanishin.

There was, however, a fourth passenger on board: George, the Red Angry Bird.

George, however, is not a mere stowaway, but a useful crew member whose duties include, it appears, orbital insertion confirmation.

As the video's commentator notes at the end of the launch video, "As you can see from the Angry Bird floating up above Shkaplerov, the crew has reached orbit."

Godspeed, Dan, Anton, Anatoly, and George. ®
