The three main stages of a successful space flight are launch, docking and landing of the spacecraft. Recently amateurs of cosmonautics have the opportunity to witness only the first two stages.
Now we are offering you a very special and absolutely unique adventure that you won’t find anywhere else. Could you ever imagine that it is possible to really witness the landing of the descent capsule, to participate in this astonishing event? We can answer – yes, now it is possible.
The launch of the rocket is always magnificent, it is an officially organized large-scale event with special traditions and preparations. The landing of the capsule is, on the contrary, something very specialized with only GCTC specialists of the search and rescue team participating. It is not an entertainment, it’s hard work. But for real amateurs of cosmonautics it is an unbelievable opportunity to witness behind-the-scenes and at the same time highly important events, to make a journey to the heart of the space history, to see the final stage of s space flight, the successful completing of the expedition work.
