On the 7th of March, 1960 the landmark event in the history of space exploration occurred – exactly on that date the first 12 people were enrolled in the cosmonaut corps. Later on their names became known all over the world because those were people who completed the first ever human spaceflight, the first spacewalk, the first orbital docking of two spacecrafts. They became the symbols of courage, examples to emulate and idols for millions of soviet citizens.
On Christmas Eve we all believe in fairytales. And space is indeed the greatest miracle of our world, it is not only the mystery of unexplored galaxies that is so fascinating about space but also the triumph of scientific progress and genius of humanity. This is what our guests from Brazil came for – to face the unknown and to explore the secrets of space.
Despite this autumn wasn’t that generous with nice sunny days, we flew quite a lot. Fans of jet aviation were not confused at all with either cloudy and rainy days or sensible frosts. Moreover when the day is gray it is doubly pleasant to fly above the clouds and see the sun smiles.
Today at the age of 85 Soviet cosmonaut # 11, the first Man to perform a spacewalk, twice awarded with the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, Alexey Leonov passed away.
September turned out to be a cosmic month. More than 400 tourists, representatives of the mass media and space agencies from around the world visited cosmodrome Baikonur for the 70th, landmark launch of the Soyuz-FG rocket from the Gagarin's Start. We witnessed the last start from Site 1, the modernization plan of the launch site is designed for three years and the next spacecraft launch will be relocated and also launched on new Soyuz-2.1a rockets.
