Greetings to the cosmonaut corps on the anniversary!

On the 7th of March, 1960 the landmark event in the history of space exploration occurred – exactly on that date the first 12 people were enrolled in the cosmonaut corps. Later on their names became known all over the world because those were people who completed the first ever human spaceflight, the first spacewalk, the first orbital docking of two spacecrafts. They became the symbols of courage, examples to emulate and idols for millions of soviet citizens.

Christmas space adventures

On Christmas Eve we all believe in fairytales. And space is indeed the greatest miracle of our world, it is not only the mystery of unexplored galaxies that is so fascinating about space but also the triumph of scientific progress and genius of humanity. This is what our guests from Brazil came for – to face the unknown and to explore the secrets of space.

Finishing autumn flights season!

Despite this autumn wasn’t that generous with nice sunny days, we flew quite a lot. Fans of jet aviation were not confused at all with either cloudy and rainy days or sensible frosts. Moreover when the day is gray it is doubly pleasant to fly above the clouds and see the sun smiles.

September turned out to be a cosmic month. More than 400 tourists, representatives of the mass media and space agencies from around the world visited cosmodrome Baikonur for the 70th, landmark launch of the Soyuz-FG rocket from the Gagarin's Start. We witnessed the last start from Site 1, the modernization plan of the launch site is designed for three years and the next spacecraft launch will be relocated and also launched on new Soyuz-2.1a rockets.

Baikonur tour – Soyuz MS-10 launch

This October we traditionally went to Baikonur together with a big international team of space fans to see off to space Soyuz MS-10 crew with commander Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and flight engineer NASA astronaut Nick Hague.

We watched the roll-out of the rocket from the integration building and its installation onto Launchpad 1, from which Gagarin’s Vostok was launched and from which all manned spacecrafts are launched ever since; we visited all possible pads, sights and museums of Baikonur, learned a lot about its history and construction. During the excursion in the International space school our guests even had a chance to launch their own rockets, though small but nonetheless significant.

On October 11, the launch date, we watched the crew walking out of the Cosmonaut hotel at Pad 17, then visited famous historical Alley and, following the crew’s steps, left for the launchsite to see how the crew already wearing spacesuits reports to the Head of State Commission on the readiness for the launch.
At 14.40 local time the rocket lifted off to the bright clear skies but for the first time in 35 years the spacecraft was not orbited. Due to a booster failure in 119 seconds the launch was aborted and emergency escape system engines ignited. The descent capsule with the crew safely landed in Zhezkazgan region.

Everyone was worried about the cosmonauts. Finally, it was reported that the search and rescue service operational crew had found the capsule and helped the crew out, the cosmonauts’ health condition was stable.
It is so amazing that Soviet specialists back then had designed such a reliable and perfect emergency system able to save cosmonauts’ lives at any stage of the launch.

This off-nominal situation united our group even more but anyhow it’d better never happen again.
Below is our traditional photo report.
