The Cosmic Samara Museum
April 23, 2018 11:14


The “Cosmic Samara” Museum impresses you at first sight - the place it takes among its surroundings is emphasized very successfully. The benchmark for potential visitors looks very different from the proud (and slightly awkward) stele of its Moscow “counterpart”: it is the legendary “Soyuz” R-7 rocket carrier installed on the museum’s building vertically, as if before the launch: this benchmark can be seen from afar. The rocket is real, not simply a model; it had served as a training model at the Plesetsk cosmodrome for 15 years, the rocket had been was built here - in Samara-Kuibyshev, at the “Progress” plant. It’s even strange that the Cosmic Museum has appeared in the capital of Russian rocket production so recently: “Cosmic Samara” was opened in 2007.

The landing modules of the “Resurs” photographic surveillance satellites exhibited in the museum not only are real, they were taken to outer space. It is worth mentioning that the thermal protection of the modules was scorched upon landing, just like it should be. The museum exhibits rocket engines produced by Samara plants at different times. You can examine all the details of the engine of the N-1 rocket, aka “Tsar-rocket”, intended for manned lunar flights. There are also products with a more severe purpose – the engines for the R-9 intercontinental ballistic missile.
