Space Adventure 2: Baikonur Cosmodrome & Space Rocket Launch
The roll-out of the spacecraft is one of the most exciting moments of the tour when a giant rocket is transported to the launchpad. It is moved very slowly with a speed of 5 km/h following by technicians and security officers. This is the only chance to watch the spacecraft so close.

About the event
ROCKET LAUNCH: A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME SPACE EXPERIENCE
There is no other place in the world where you can truly experience space exploration by mankind other than Baikonur in Kazakhstan. It is the world’s first and largest space launch facility built by the Soviets in the 1950’s. Sputnik, the world’s first satellite was launched from this cosmodrome in 1957, followed by the first human spaceflight with Yuri Gagarin onboard the ‘Vostok’ spacecraft on April 12th, 1961.
Since then over 1,200 spacecraft were launched into space from here. It is managed by the Russian space agency (that leases a territory almost 7000 sq. km from Kazakhstan) until 2050.
