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.

61 photos

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.

Zero gravity flights

Perform an amazing Zero Gravity flight!

All of us at least once in our lives dreamt of flying. We have no wings like birds have, but nowadays wings are not necessary any more for people to fly. It becomes possible with the help of zero-g conditions. Let your dream come true! You have this chance if you perform a flight on board the IL-76 MDK flying laboratory like cosmonauts do during their space flight training.

Weightlessness is one of the main specific factors of space flight that requires special organization of cosmonauts’ professional activity.

Conditions of weightlessness simulated on board the flying laboratory are very close to real space flight conditions and thus allow to train the majority of operations in the periods of 25-30 seconds. Since 1967 to 1979 such flights were performed on flying laboratories Tu-104A. Since 1980 IL-76 MDK flying laboratories are used for such zero-g flights.

The «IL-76 MDK» wide-body airplane is a unique flying laboratory, which can create short-term weightless conditions. To achieve a short-term micro-gravity, the aircraft flies in a parabolic pattern that is called Kepler curve, rising to a height of about 20,000 feet, and then curving downward. People feel weightlessness in the upper point of parabola. It lasts from 22 to 28 seconds depending on flight accomplishment conditions and can be recreated up to 15 times within one flight. The Zero-G flight lasts 1,5 hours. Total time of your stay in weightless conditions can be approximately 450 seconds.
