NASA spent nearly 20 years developing a form of space ice cream that astronauts found palatable. Meanwhile, the Soviet space program was working on stuff like this, the NAZ-3 survival kit. It was designed in 1968 for the Soviet Soyuz spacecraft, the reliable workhorse of space flight which is still in use today. The kit (above) contained the following from top left to bottom right:
- Makarov pistol and ammunition
- wrist compass
- 18 waterproof matches with striker
- machete; fishing kit
- strobe light with spare battery
- 8 fire starters
- folding knife
- antenna
- 3-pair wool gloves
- signal mirror
- NAZ-7M type medical kit
- penlight
- R-855-YM or R-855-A1 radio
- two "Priboy 2S" ПРИБОЙ-2С radio batteries
- three wool balaclava hoods
The pistol was intended to scare off "wolves, bears, tigers, etc." on the event of a crash landing.

Andrew Shears has created a map that shows 124 states that could have existed in America, big pic! What would the U.S. look like if all of the secession movements in U.S. history had succeeded?  Well, Mansfield University geography professor Andrew Shears built a map to answer that question. (It covers secession movements through the end of 2011.)
"Most of my life, I've daydreamed about history — not so much the incredible depth of historical events that have already occurred, good thinking as that might be. No, I've constantly fictionalized history by changing the outcome of one event here and there and exploring the possibilities of what would have come next. Sometimes I come up with some utterly ridiculous progressions on these alternate timelines of whole new worlds based on relatively minor changes."
