Did you see Zorba ? He's dancing. On I-tunes ? Nope, on Nep-tune...

In English-speaking nations, a professional space traveler is called an astronaut. The term derives from the Greek words ástron (ἄστρον), meaning "star", and nautes (ναύτης), meaning "sailor" (Wikipedia) - that's why we call their rides space ships and not space planes by the way...

So no wonder the Greeks made also some toys out of these... and what toys ! They are a worthy ancestor to the action figures, with their moveable arms and clear helmet !

Astronaut, Athena (AOHNA), Greece, 1960's
