A video sent by Rosatom showed the astronauts displaying a picture taken by the children with Russian space pilot, Mikhail Kornienko during his visit to the school last year. Artemyev said in the video that they had received a lot of letters and congratulations on the International Cosmonauts Day.

"One of those letters was unique. It was full of warmth and love and we could not resist ourselves from replying. The letter is written by school children from a village called Kundakulam in South India who study at Atomic Central School," he said.
