Baikonur Tour – Soyuz MS-06 Launch

66 photos

Together with a group of space and adventure fans we saw off to space from Baikonur launch site one more international crew. From tour to tour our groups tend to grow in size and though the major part of the group were Russian citizens it is very pleasant to see that more and more foreign guests show great interest to Russian cosmonautics. This time we had a team of space fans from USA, tourists from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand and France.

Corporate Space Training

All the companies actually want corporate events they hold for their employees to be unique and creative. And what can be more interesting and unbelievable than to become a cosmonaut for a day! That’s why Viasat Company came to us for the corporate event on the basis of GCTC.

But first things first. What do the cosmonauts wear going to space? Our guests tried Sokol rescue spacesuits the crew wears inside the spacecraft during the launch and landing, learned how to control the spacesuit’s systems and tried to do it sitting in special lodgment.

To answer the question how the cosmonauts get to the ISS our program participants studied the systems of Soyuz manned spacecrafts used to bring cosmonauts’ crews to the station.

How do the cosmonauts live in space? Mir space station full-size mock-up enabled the guests to assess the scale of so-called “space house”, while inside the module they learned how the cosmonauts control the station, how they sleep and eat, take exercises onboard the station and organize their daily routine.

By the way cooking and eating under weightlessness conditions is a very complex process that requires special additional training during which our “cosmonauts” showed great enthusiasm cooking the samples of space food using special simulator and after that gladly tasted it.

To get the idea of how the cosmonauts are being trained for G-loads and weightlessness our guests passed training on special vestibular simulators and were greatly impressed by the enormous Centrifuge used to prepare cosmonauts for conditions of real G-loads during the insertion and descent of the spacecraft.

Since every long-duration space flight stipulates extravehicular activities our guests watched how the cosmonauts practice their future operations in the open space on the basis of GCTC Hydrolaboratory.

After such busy program all participants of our space adventure gathered for festive lunch during which real cosmonaut Sergey Zalyotin who already has been to space twice joined them and told them about his space experience.
