      April Fool in space, 2010. The three-man crew of the International Space Station got a laugh from Mission Control with a photo of themselves spacewalking wearing not space suits, but slacks, T-shirts and sunglasses. (Hope they remembered the sunblock!) They were cosmonaut Oleg Kotov and astronauts Timothy Creamer (USA) & Soichi Noguchi (Japan).
