    Tau Ceti challenges ISS Stability

     

    Tau Ceti: I did it!
    CAPCOM: Did what?
    Tau Ceti: I have a challenge for your Swanson!
    CAPCOM: Well, 15 seconds makes difference, let's see.

     

    Tau Ceti: Sing us any verse from either Russian Cosmonauts Anthem ("GRASS AT OUR LAWNS") or popular "I AM EARTH" dedicated always to remember your colleagues by industry. Both iReported, ask CNN. A-ha, cool!

     


    I am Earth*

     

    1.

     

    We're excited and slightly annoyed
    Yes, we did it at wonderful time -
    Unimaginable came as potential
    Other worlds became open for us;
    We have reached their limits
    in belief of support
    Which we felt by the hearts
    as the voice from spaceport...

     


    Refrain

     

    I am Earth.
    I see off all my best and well trained -
    Beloved daughters and sons...

    Go-n-reach outskirts of the Sun
    Welcome back to the home just fine!
    Gonna reach up to star of the sun ...
    Welcome back to the home just fine!

     


    2.

     

    We were launched from beautiful planet
    With purpose to share from a space
    Only truth just a truth, but some fiction
    From the heart we are greeting all you...
    With victorious voice
    to all colleagues in space
    Real voice of the love,
    long-awaited signal:

     


    Refrain

     

    I am Earth.
    I see off all my best and well trained -
    Beloved daughters and sons...
    Go-n-reach outskirts of the Sun
    Welcome back to the home just fine!
    Gonna reach up to star of the sun ...
    Welcome back to the home just fine!

     


    3.

     

    No one will diminish high goals
    Just with us they are always in team
    Cosmonauts, astronauts, all supporters
    Who helped Earth going up and ahead
    Hence let sounds triumph as for them and for us
    From the Earth CAPCOM order and maternal mandate

     


    Refrain

     

    I am Earth.
    I see off all my best and well trained -
    Beloved daughters and sons...
    Go-n-reach outskirts of the Sun
    Welcome back to the home just fine!
    Gonna reach up to star of the sun ...
    Welcome back to the home just fine!

     


    Hence let sounds triumph as for them and for us
    From the Earth CAPCOM order and maternal mandate

     


    Refrain

     

    I am Earth.
    I see off all my best and well trained -
    Beloved daughters and sons...
    Go-n-reach outskirts of the Sun
    Welcome back to the home just fine!

     

    Well, we'll reach up to star of the sun ...
    Welcome back to the home just fine!

    ORIGINAL RUSSIAN LYRICS

     

    1.
    На душе и легко, и тревожно:
    Мы достигли чудесной поры -
    Невозможное стало возможным,
    Нам открылись иные миры;
    Только б мы их пределов достичь не смогли,
    Если б сердцем не слышали голос вдали...

     

    Припев

     

    Я Земля.
    Я своих провожаю питомцев -
    Сыновей, дочерей...

    Долетайте до самого Солнца
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей!
    Долетим мы до самого Солнца...
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей...

     


    2.
    Покидаем мы Землю родную
    Для того, чтоб до звезд и планет
    Донести нашу правду земную
    И земной наш поклон и привет...
    Для того, чтобы всюду победно звучал
    Чистый голос любви, долгожданный
    сигнал:

     

    Припев

     

    Я Земля.
    Я своих провожаю питомцев -
    Сыновей, дочерей...
    Долетайте до самого Солнца
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей!
    Долетим мы до самого Солнца...
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей...

     


    3.
    Далеки, высоки наши цели,
    С нами вместе на звездном пути
    Те, что жизни своей не жалели
    И Земле помогли расцвести!
    Пусть победно звучит и для них, и для нас
    Командирский приказ, материнский наказ:

     

    Припев

     

    Я Земля.
    Я своих провожаю питомцев -
    Сыновей, дочерей...
    Долетайте до самого Солнца
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей!
    Долетим мы до самого Солнца...
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей...

     


    ... Пусть победно звучит и для них, и для нас
    Командирский приказ, материнский наказ:

     

    Припев

     

    Я Земля.
    Я своих провожаю питомцев -
    Сыновей, дочерей...
    Долетайте до самого Солнца
    И домой возвращайтесь скорей!

     

    Долетим мы до самого Солнца...
    И домой возвратимся скорей...
