Space Travel Simulation in Russia
November 30, 2007 23:47

What else can make the heart beat faster and more excitedly if not space travel? The world-famous Star City in Russia allows travellers to touch the space history and get acquainted with unique objects and programmes of cosmonauts training for flying to space.

The Centre of Cosmonauts Training named after Yuri Gagarin on the territory of Star City gives brave and desperate tourists an opportunity to overcome the space acceleration, try hydrospace and real zero-gravity, and to pilot space aircraft simulators. There is also an opportunity to enrol to Programmes of ground and sea survival for cosmonauts in Russian regions or to visit Baikonur Cosmodrome and watch rockets launching.

Excursion to Star City

In the course of the excursion tourists learn the history of Star City creation of the Centre of Cosmonauts Training, the history of Star City and arrangement of the objects of the City (Heroes Alley, monuments, Cosmonauts House). Tourists can also visit the Museum of the Centre of Cosmonauts Training that has rich collections materials and documents concerning the outer space exploration, cosmonauts training and work in space. The excursion also implies a visit to a unique planetarium, where cosmonauts usually learn the sky maps.


When being placed into orbit or descending to the earth, a space ship is affected by accelerations. The worlds largest centrifuge with a mobile cabin is used to simulate accelerations that take place during a space flight. Tourists can have a trial on overcoming of accelerations which cosmonauts usually experience during a space flight.

Hydrospace Simulation

Hydro zero-gravity is one of the most effective ways to simulate the conditions of work in the outside space. This simulation is based on placing the space equipment objects and a cosmonaut wearing a space suit in a hydro pool for giving them the state of zero-gravity, zero-stability, and zero-support state. Hydrospace simulation gives tourists a chance to feel like a cosmonaut working in the outside space, to sink into the Hydro Lab pool and see models of space stations and ships, to go through a course of rehabilitation along with hyperbaric oxygenation.

Space Simulators

During training on the unique equipment tourists can get real skills of piloting space ships, to learn the real process of space ships docking, and to master basic space navigation.

Zero Gravity

Space existence means existence of zero gravity. Everyone knows about it but only few people have a chance to feel personally what it really is. When preparing for a flight cosmonauts and astronauts go through training on the so-called flying laboratory. The Centre of Cosmonauts Training named after Yuri Gagarin gives tourists such opportunity too.
