Let's watch the launch of Soyuz MS-22 and learn about space!
We have prepared a program for tourists who will be able to see the museums of a closed object - the Baikonur Cosmodrome itself and the restricted city of the same name.
The Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft is named after the great self-taught scientist Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky.
It is a Russian manned transport spacecraft scheduled for launch to the International Space Station on September 21, 2022. Expedition ISS-68, which will begin in autumn 2022 and will end in the spring of 2023, will be headed by cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev, with him will fly engineer Dmitry Petelin and NASA astronaut Francisco Rubio. The spacecraft will be launched from Baikonur using a Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle.
It is expected that the flight to the ISS will take three hours. That is, the tourists will not have time to disperse to their homes, and the spacecraft will already dock with the ISS.
