In 2016 the Cosmonautics has a great jubilee. 55 years ago humanity took the first step to space exploration when Yuri Gagarin performed manned spaceflight for the first time in the history of mankind.

People of various occupations and nationalities from Great Britain, Canada, USA, France, New Zealand and naturally Russia are conquering Edge of space onboard Russian MiG-29UB all-weather jet fighter despite heavy snowfalls.

After flight to the Edge of Space some of our foreign guests were still not ready to rest.

Such great achievements can really pave their way to space!
