(WIRED Science) – It’s not just NASA that’s hip to the social media game anymore. Now, the Russian space agency Roscosmos has one of its own blogging from the International Space Station.

The blog, as translated by Russia Today, includes pictures from the ISS — and covers a much different array of topics than you usually see in NASA press releases or Twitter feeds. A recent post detailed the “holy symbols” in the Russian area of the station, illustrated by photos of icons and crucifixes floating in zero gravity.

We know it is inevitable that Iran is going to be bombed, and Israel is probably going to lead the way. When the whole world is already against you, what do you have to loose? I can only imagine the firestorm that will erupt from this move to neuter Iran. It is a sure bet that Russia will get involved since they are so entrenched in the Iranian nuclear program. Of course Syria and the Hezbollah will use it as an excuse to unleash the rockets they are just itching to use. Sound apocalyptic? Well it is. The position Israel is in now had been prophesized to happen and here we are just waiting for someone to light the fuse. Are you ready?
