Launch Tour

Imagine a sound so powerful that you feel it reverberating throughout your entire body as you stand in the midst of the sparsely inhabited plains of Central Asia.  This is the sound of a high-performance Soyuz rocket carrying its crew of three space explorers into orbit, and the moment will stay with you forever…

Whether you are contemplating your own flight to space, or simply looking for a hard to find experience, this is a great opportunity to learn about the Russian manned spaceflight program by watching the preparations for launch first-hand.
