Today's pictures & links:

Very sad story, really, somewhat similar to Wall-E sentiments - "Lunokhod" (Moon Walker) was actually a very cute machine, having a glamorous and grand history of Moon exploration:

This photograph was taken in the courtyard of the Institute for Space Studies - they came back with a statement that this is only a model, slated for restoration (damage control? we're not sure what to believe now)
