The largest space museum complex in Russia, the Cosmonautics and Aviation Centre at VDNH, first opened to the general public in the renovated historic Pavilion No. 34 Space on April 13, 2018. A new point of attraction on the map of Moscow will capture the attention not only of Muscovites, but also tourists from all over the world. Everyone can visit the large-scale exposition on the achievements of Russian cosmonautics and future space exploration projects.
In Pavilion No. 34, Space, full-scale preparations for the opening of the Space and Aviation Centre are underway. All the showpieces have already been placed, hung and fixed in their spots. Igor Marinin, editor-in-chief of the Space News magazine and academician of the Russian Space Academy will tell us about the ten most unusual ones.
To celebrate International Women's Day we've achieved an unmatched goal: We counted all the images of women found in the exhibition, on sculptures, murals, reliefs, paintings, etc. There are 173 images in all. However, it's obviously impossible to write about all the women, so we've chosen ten of the most interesting ones among them—they attracted us with their stories and beauty.
