Unbelievable Adventures of the Japanese in Russia

Two young space fans from Japan came to Russia for unbelievable space experience. The friends are interested in aviation and cosmonautics, practice sky-jumping that’s why tour in Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Centre impressed them greatly. During excursion they learned much about Soyuz spacecraft and ISS design and layout, saw how Mir space station looked like and passed the training on Egress-2 simulator. This unique training in Orlan spacesuits enables the cosmonauts to practice further extravehicular activities. Special systems simulate support-free condition thus participants of the training feel like real cosmonauts performing a spacewalk.

After such trainings it is high time to go to the orbit! Or at least to the edge of space. So our guests went to Sokol airbase in Nizhny Novgorod to perform Edge of space flights.

Unpredicted heavy snowfall couldn’t stop our all-weather MiG-29 jet fighters; both guests performed the flights as planned and were extremely happy. Our sky conquerors concluded their tour with sightseeing tour around Nizhny.
