This beautiful photo comes from Kei_Kei_Flic on Flickr. Depicting the Soviet-era Lunniy Korabl Lunar Module (and a cheery Russian cosmonaught) on the surface of Earth’s Moon, it’s sadly more fantasy than historic event.

The Russian KL Moon Lander never made it to the Moon. The N1 rocket designed to take it there started encountering problems following the death of its designer, and the project ended in spectacular fashion, with the largest artificial non-nuclear explosion in history.
