Russia Space Trip 2015 

Russia Space Trip 2015 


Our trip to Russia was a once in a lifetime opportunity, it combined a programme of space master classes with cultural and historical tours and experiences. Highlights of the space master classes included visiting Mission Control and meeting Russian cosmonauts; some of us were lucky enough to try on their spacesuits! We had endless opportunities to ask the cosmonauts and other experts whatever questions we wanted and we made the very most of this; we asked about everything from their thoughts on space exploration to Mars to the best types of space food. Throughout the week we also learnt about the culture and history of Russia through several tours of Moscow. We travelled around the city by metro and were amazed by the effort that went into making every metro station a work of art and different to the previous stop. Highlights of our time in the city included visiting Red Square by night, seeing St Basil's Cathedral lit up, visiting the Kremlin and some of us even saw Lenin's mummified body! The chance to visit places most people will never visit was an amazing experience that we will never forget.
