Famous Russian Spy Anna Chapman made a rare public appearance to watch the launch of the last Soyuz a couple days ago.
The already improbable Anna Chapman saga took another surprising twist today when the 28-year-old former Russian spy resurfaced in Kazakhstan to wave off a space rocket.
Early today, however, Chapman arrived at the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to see off a US astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts bound for the International Space Station.
She appeared at the farewell ceremony for the space crew and was quickly moved to a guest house near the launch pad accompanied by a guard who blocked reporters. She made no public comment.
An official with Russia’s space agency said Chapman was at Baikonur as an adviser to the president of FondServisBank, which works with space industry companies and was handing out awards.
Certainly wouldn’t mind seeing her before being sent off into space!
