The Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics
Moscow, Prospekt Mira, 111.
Museum website

Previously, it was a small muzeychik with several models of satellites. Now this is an interesting museum about the space program, with these modules, which is terribly interesting to hang for a long time. The museum director Alexander Lazutkin, cosmonaut himself and the museum is such a space subculture. Okay, let's finally see. First dog astronauts, Squirrel …

And Arrow.

It is they who most. They lived a happy life and died a natural death, and then have to make a scarecrow.

The first artificial earth satellite. Most likely, this is not it, and one of the copies, the first burned up in the atmosphere long ago.

In general, in the hall who met us upon entry, arranged all sorts of satellites and interplanetary probes.

The Order of Lenin (the highest award of the Soviet Union) and the Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union (the higher the degree of difference between the USSR) Yuri Gagarin.

East, where Gagarin flew into space. That's it look salon. There's little space and crowded, difficult to capture the entire interior through a small window and a wide angle.

Imagine this now everything is debugged and tested, and then. Gagarin was put into a tight, sealed, cozy, spherical 'coffin' on top of the stuffed fuel rocket. This is considering that five unmanned launches before, only two were successful. This is what we are accustomed to think of Gagarin's fearless hero, and at the moment at the start of it for sure, where you have to bench-press.

Private room with an exhibition devoted to the history of design and discovery of the first flights. Jet engines.

Queen leather coat.

Globe of the Moon.

About the study of celestial bodies and interplanetary missions, also a separate exhibition.
Mock lunar rover.

Luna-16. Automatic station for the study of the moon. Such a plant to start up in order to return to Earth samples of lunar soil.

Just imagine how much effort, time and effort of scientists to reach the Moon with this.
This lunar soil samples.

The lander interplanetary station Mars-3. This thing (actually the same), the first thing that plopped down on Mars was created out of people.

Meteorites in the museum space as opposed to Planetarium you can touch everything.
Iron unbunched ataxia (for nerds info).

Playful pen visitors polished meteor, it is clear that a metal stone.

The Diving Bell "Merlin" for spacewalks and the work of astronauts on the moon's surface. Our work on the moon and has not had the opportunity, as far as you know.

This suit of Michael Collins. This is the one in the expedition of Apollo 11, piloted the command module in orbit of the moon when Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon run rounded up. Armstrong, the first people who stepped onto the surface of the moon, if someone does not know.
I was told that Collins was in the museum, saw his suit, smiled, and he has to do.

Space probe Venera 10.

This is what would you think? GLONASS.

Well, okay, enough already about the still space to talk. The most interesting thing is that human missions in space and their lives there. Come closer to the subject.

This IL-76 (or more precisely its layout) equipped for training astronauts work in zero gravity. The airplane climbs, and then goes into free fall, in which a state of weightlessness. A few minutes of free fall, and the aircraft is climbing again.

Launch pad Soyuz rocket from Baikonur, in the common Gagarin's Start.

Launch pad at the Baikonur Union in French Guiana.

Shuttle launch pad.

Such is the installation on the theme of docking in space Soyuz-4 and Soyuz-5. Then, from one ship to another could only go through the open space.

From another angle, right in the cosmos.

This docking system, which was developed for the first international docking in space, both the Union and the American Apollo.

This is the descent module of the spacecraft Soyuz. In this module, the astronauts are when flying in space, it is returned to earth. The module is designed for a flight of three astronauts. Soyuz spacecraft — For an optional study.

Cradle, simply put, an armchair astronaut. Manufactured by each astronaut individually.

Living quarters. As you can see in the module in which astronauts will start quite closely, and before docking with the ISS and is aligned with the ship in orbit over a day. So uncomfortable to sit in a contorted position. This time, the astronauts hang out in a more spacious living compartment.

Rescue suit "Falcon-K." Astronaut space suit is needed in case of depressurization of the ship. There was a time in space when astronauts flew in sweat pants and at the time of planting, the module may be leaking, all those astronauts have never flown anywhere else.

Very interesting exhibit in the museum is a module Zvezda. In this module, our astronauts, live, eat, work, sleep and go to the toilet. In this module you can go. True, he is bald, in reality, all these panels covers the walls, ceiling and floor are made to the modules of devices.

Cabin astronaut.

Video from Maxim Suraeva, about bytovuhu the ISS: Cabin on the ISS

The station toilet.

Flight suit. In this suit, VA Janibekov worked at the station Salyut-7 in 1985.

In general, for all the astronauts made personally for each. Suits are made in the form lodgements made in person, even underwear and socks made by each astronaut personally. Therefore, nameless things, the astronauts do not. Any clothes were sewn for someone special.

Here's shoes, cool shoes at all.

Replacement jumpsuit SA Volkov.

Preventive load suit "Penguin-3". The suit is made so as to load the muscles astronaut and not give them to atrophy due to prolonged stay in weightlessness.

Bathrobe AI Laveykin. Apparently Roscosmos not telling us something about the ISS, it seems, there they have in orbit and has a bathhouse.

Here, beach suit. The joke, of course.
Training-load suit TNK-1 astronaut VA Lyahova.

Shorts-suit "Centaur"

Right preventive pneumatic vacuum kit "Chibis". We need to act down the barometric pressure on the lower part of the astronaut's body to prevent disorders of the cardiovascular system when you return to the ground conditions after a long stay in weightlessness.
Left immersion suits "Trout" is used in the event of an emergency landing on water.

The water supply system "Kolos-5D." Drinking water, canned ionic silver, silver water for the astronauts, in general.

Conservation in the range.

Electric heater. It warmed up canned foods in tubes and jars.



Set the traveling.

Exercise bike. But on such a simulator astronauts involved in fitness.


Please note that all this set on a small stalk molded Velcro to the wall, weightlessness tree.

Set the other hand.

Spacesuit for spacewalks and manekenokosmonavt in his climb up through the door in the back.

Airlock to exit astronauts into space.

In general, the astronauts on the ISS does not fly to hang out and spend a lot of experiments, the results of which form the basis of the planned interplanetary flights. For example, in each mission the astronauts grow some plants.

Setting the "Keystone" to study the growth and development of plant tissues.

Different sets of seeds.

Setting the "Oasis-1M" was used on the orbital station "Salyut-7" and "peace."

The device FIS-2. Designed for growing mushrooms, and microorganisms, as well as aquatic animals, newts, crabs and shrimp.

Setting the "Oasis-1"

Funny installation on just landed astronauts roasting sausages over a fire in the forest.

And at the end of the descent module bunch of instructions from the series help the astronaut escape.
