03.12.2010: SOYUZ LANDING 2011: Today we were informed by our partners from Russia that the rescue team of the Russian space agency mentioned, that the weather conditions in March were not really great to attend the landing of the Soyuz TMA-01M. It would not be only just the weather, the landing zones could be very different from each other. Out of this, we have decided to cancel the adventure for March for Soyuz TMA-01M. Now, we will attend the landing of Soyuz TMA-20 what is scheduled (at the moment!) for June 16th, 2011. In June, the weather is much more pleasant, because it can get quite windy when you're standing in the vastness of the steppes of Kazakhstan and wait for the sonic boom, which occurs high above you in heaven before the Soyuz descent capsule, hanging on their giant parachute, slides down to the ground. More ...

More ...


24.11.2010: DEPARTURE TO THE SPACE STATION - SOYUZ TMA-21: As you stand in 1.5 kilometres of distance to the Gagarinsky launchpad, you enjoyed the whole preparation of launching this rocket to space since the last 3 days. Thousands of kilometres and 6 days ago you started the voyage on the footsteps of Yuri Gagarin. In 2011, it is the 50th anniversary, as this man was first who goes to space. And now, you can be there - at the awesome place of the cosmodrome Baikonur in the steppes of Kazakhstan! Then, the rocket engines are fired and the rocket threatens to burn up in a ball of fire! But then, the Soyuz does its liftoff majestically in the skies over Kazakhstan. You can watch the rocket during its ascent long time after the stage separation from the first stage if the so-called 'Koroljov Cross' is showing in the sky. 3 days later, at the Mission Control Centre at Koroljov nearby Moscow, you will see the Soyuz again, if it is docked with its crew to the International Space Station.

05.10.2010: SPACE SHUTTLE FAREWELL TOUR 2011. The last launch of a space shuttle is now scheduled for 27/02/2011. The STS-134 Endeavour mission could be the last Space Shuttle mission forever. However, there is a currently thinking, to add a Space Shuttle mission STS-135 what will have its liftoff in June 2011. This is carried out, if it isn't carried out the support Mission STS-335, which is at the same time on the launchpad as STS-134 in February 2011. Since the Columbia disaster in 2003, NASA chose a "rescue mission" what is on the pad at the same time, if another mission is running into troubles in space. The U.S. Congress has approved a budget for this mission on 30.09.2009. Should it come to the Mission STS-135, Space Shuttle Atlantis will be on 28 June 2011 on the pad to have a liftoff to an 11-day mission, with the minimum crew of 4 astronauts on board, the smallest crew ever on board a Shuttle since 1983 (STS-6)? We keep you informed of this potential date, simply add your name to our newsletter. We have created a special and exceptional tour, moving around the last Shuttle launch! Follow us in U.S. space history and the future of space! More ...
