The Olympic Torch in Space

SPACE AFFAIRS EXPEDITION "THE OLYMPIC TORCH IN SPACE" SPECIAL

The Olympic Torch In Space - Soyuz lift-off and landing only in one week!


Soyuz on the way to the launchpad. The Olympic Wintergames 2014 will start on February 7 and will run up to February 24 2014 in Sochi/Russia. International winter sport athletes will fight for the coveted precious metals in several disciplines.

For this special occasion, the Russian space agency "Roskosmos" decided to carry the Olympic Torch on November 7th 2013 with Soyuz TMA-11M into orbit.

It is planned that the Olympic Torch will be presented in open space in a spacewalk between November 9 and 10. The Torch will then return on November 11 2013 with the crew of Soyuz TMA-09M to Earth. With this mission, European Astronaut Luca Permentino will return to earth, too.

Soyuz cosmonauts and astronauts after landing For this specific reason, the originally planned launch of Soyuz TMA-11M has been brought forward by a few weeks, and there is still a unique opportunity for you to see the launch of Soyuz from the Russian Baikonur Cosmodrome and the subsequent landing of Soyuz TMA-09M in the steppes of Kazakhstan within a week!

We designed a unique expedition, what is still of interest for any space flight enthusiast!

Experience the Russian cosmodrome of Baikonur during a historical voyage, watch the preparations of the launch of Soyuz TMA-11M and the lift-off itself in distance of only 1,5 kilometers! After the lift-off, you will head to the capitol city of Kazakhstan Astana in eastern direction to get finally to Karaganda!

There you will experience all the preparations of the landing of Soyuz TMA-09M. You will be a part of the recovery team! You will be carried into the middle of nowhere. Here, you will meet the teams of the Russian space agency Roskosmos! Afterwards you will drive several hours through the lonely steppe and you will experience the landing! You will belong to a spectator live in the first row and you can give the coming back international cosmonauts and astronaut a warm greeting!
