5 Days / Bajkonur Cosmodrome
The Bajkonur Cosmodrome called also Tjuratam is the oldest launch site in the world. It was built by the Soviet Union and still remains under the Russian administration until 2050 also if it’s geographically located within Kazakhstan.
It is a fascinating place for space lovers, about 200km from Lake Aral and 30km from the city of the same name, designed to mislead Western countries on the position of the base.
Bajkonur was the main center of the Soviet rocket development program. The cosmodrome has a hangar no longer in use, now abandoned but 2/3 times a year it is possible to see the launch of some rockets in space.
Next launches planned in Bajkonur Cosmodrome:
25.09.2019 – manned Soyuz-МC-15
20.12.2019 – unmanned Progress МС-13
