Baikonur cosmodrome tour
Tour to Baikonur cosmodrome with watching of the Soyuz MS-06 rocket lift-off!
Just a few days ago together with a large group of space fans we saw a manned spacecraft off to the ISS. Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft with Sergey Ryazansky (Roscosmos), Paolo Nespoli (ESA) and Randolf Bresnik (NASA) was launched from the pad #1 of Baikonur launhsite on July 28, at 21.41 local time (18.41, Moscow time).
Guests from Switzerland who have already been to GCTC last year, came to Moscow again a while ago. Moreover they invited a group of their friends from different countries such as the USA, Switzerland, Brazil, France, and Spain. One of the group participants was Luxemburg royalty who was deeply inspired by the guide’s exciting speech about space industry.
Just a couple of days ago our crew returned from Baikonur where had spent 6 days with cosmonautics fans arranging for them a breathtaking tour with the observation of the launch. On April 20th, Soyuz MS-04 crew made up of Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin and American astronaut Jack Fisher was successfully launched to the ISS.
On April 12 we celebrate World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day. 56 years ago on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin performed first spaceflight proving that there is nothing impossible.
Early morning at the Baikonur cosmodrome. Soyuz launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft leaves the Assembly and Testing Building and is rolled out to the launch pad on the rail transporter/erector. The picture was taken by one of the participants of our recent tour to Baikonur.
