Russian Cosmonaut QUITS ISS for more 'EXCITING' JOB! WTF??
What JOB?? WTF? Guess the wages DO suck...or is it something else?

Russian cosmonaut from 2015 ISS mission resigns, 'found more exciting job'

“He came up to me and said that he found a more exciting job than working in outer space. And wrote his resignation letter,” chief of the Cosmonaut Training Center, Sergey Krikalev, told Interfax news agency on Thursday.

“Frankly, we counted on his participation because he was not just in the unit, he was assigned to the crew," said Krikalev, adding that he does not understand the decision.

Lonchakov’s retirement sent the Russian blogosphere into a frenzy, with many questioning which profession could possibly be more interesting than being an cosmonaut.

True, that aspect. But he did train for that. Not like it was a surprise. Hmm...

He sure acts like he was 'spooked' by something to me. But what?

I don't understand what the fascination with being an astronaut is

All the interesting stuff is happening ON earth, not above and around it

Idiots!
