“Let’s go!”: Memorable Places of Yuri Gagarin and Space Routes of Moscow

Moscow is the capital of a country with many space victories to its credit. The first artificial satellite of the Earth, the first human space launch and later the first spacewalk, the flight and photography of the dark side of the Moon, flights to Venus and the successful landing on Mars, the launch of the first ever multi-module orbital station Mir into orbit – all these achievements were carefully prepared and planned in Moscow. 

There are also space breakthroughs in the country’s recent history: Russia was the first to learn how to print human and animal tissue in space, launched the Progress MS-11 transport cargo ship, created the GLONASS global satellite navigation system and began developing a nuclear engine for interplanetary flights. Take a walk along Moscow’s space routes and visit places associated with the dream.
