Soyuz TMA-15M, tour to Baikonur
Even cold November didn’t prevent our tourists from different cities of Russia from seeing off Soyuz TMA-15M spacecraft crew comprising Commander Anton Shkaplerov (Roscosmos) and two flight engineers Samantha Christoforetti (ESA) and Terry Virts (NASA) to the space.
During our 5 days program our guests enjoyed the unforgettable prelaunch atmosphere. Indeed it is a stunning experience, a great deal of new interesting information about cosmonauts, rockets, spacecrafts and Baikonur spaceport and what is more important our guests visited and watched all prelaunch events such as roll-out and installation of the rocket, international press-conference, parting ceremony etc.
On November 24, at 00.01, Moscow time, Soyuz-FG booster with Soyuz TMA-15M manned spacecraft was successfully launched from #31 launchpad of Baikonur spaceport.
All our tour participants have dreamt of watching the launch and that day their dream came true!
6 hours after the launch the tourists watched Soyuz docking with the ISS on-line and were very excited to see the crews meeting onboard the ISS.
For our customers this tour to Baikonur spaceport became a breathtaking adventure realizing their dream and giving them wonderful impressions. We are very glad that once again our program made so many people happy.
