"I Want To Be A Cosmonaut!" Interactive Exhibition
February 22, 2014 14:25


"I want to be cosmonaut!" interactive exhibition, where children and adults can go through all the stages of the orbital flight, opened at the Moscow Planetarium. The project is implemented in collaboration with the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center as one of the events dedicated to 85th anniversary of the Planetarium.

The exhibition displays the exhibits related to the implementation of Russian space programmes. Before, many of them were kept sealed. The visitors have to pass through seven stages towards the journey into outer space. First, they fill in the cosmonaut admission application, and then fulfill the tasks to determine their level of physical and intellectual fitness. To get into the orbit, they need to have special equipment.

Visitors can get acquainted with "Sokol" spacesuit used by cosmonauts in the cases of cabin depressurization and with "Orlan" spacesuit, which has all life-supporting systems and is designed for spacewalks. During the flight simulation, the guests looking out the window can see an amazing sight – the view of our planet from the space.

Moreover, the exhibition visitors can connect with the ISS, get centrifuge tested, see the space food, carry out a space rendezvous and even have a walk on the Moon surface. The cosmonaut Vladimir Janibekov, who made five flights and two walks in space, said at the exhibition opening: "Children and adults were brought here by one question: what is there, beyond the seventh sphere of the universe? I think there is a world, which should be treated, more sublime, than seriously. I wish everyone, who will visit this exhibition, to find his way to the stars and to make his own discovery. Today we receive from distant depths of the universe such news, that probably many of our thoughts in physics and astronomy will have to be changed soon."

"I want to be a cosmonaut!" exhibition at the Moscow Planetarium will operate daily except Tuesdays, from 10:00 to 21:00 and will last until October 31, 2014.
