Guided tour to RSC Energia museum with Jean-Pierre Haignere.
The Museum of RSC Energia is a very unique one. Every object here is real: artificial Earth satellites and interplanetary stations «Luna-3» and «Luna-9». You will also see the genuine Gagarin’s and Tereshkova’s Leonov’s space capsules, as well as life-size models of the first international orbital complex «Soyuz-Apollo» and the orbital station «Mir» and much-much more.
At the Museum there was restored the original office of S.P. Korolev, an outstanding scientist and design engineer, the father of the rocket and space technologies and missile weapons of the USSR. If you are lucky, you will be allowed to sit at the table of the Chief Engineering Officer, which is no small feat!
This time the participants of our group had an awesome opportunity to get the information about the everyday life on the “Mir” station in the own words of the legendary French astronaut Jean-Pierre Haigneré, who took part in two expeditions to “Mir” – in 1993 and 1999, spending 186 days on the station during the mission in 1993. Being a passionate storyteller, he was telling in a vivid and humorous way about the life on the station, the life of astronauts, shared memories of his space flights.
