Guests from the New World
On October, 19 Michael and Jillian, the two young guests from the USA had a personal tour to Star City. By the way, these guys came to Russia just for visiting GCTC!
During their space tour they passed Sokol rescue spacesuit trainings, which the crew wears inside the spacecraft during the launch and landing; Mike and Jillian also learned how to control the spacesuit’s systems and tried to do it sitting in special lodgment.
They examined Soyuz TMA spaceship simulators, Mir space station full-size mock-up and International space station by not only observing them outside but also by getting inside. Inside the module of Mir space station full-size mock-up they learned how the cosmonauts control the station and what actually cosmonauts do onboard ISS.
We are very glad that there are a lot of space fans all over the world and we really look forward to welcome them in Star City!
