Space Lesson on Astronomy Day at VDNH

13 may 2021

15 May is International Astronomy Day. The VDNH Cosmonautics and Aviation Centre will hold a Space Lesson with the instructors of Russia's Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre as special guests. Admission is free if booked in advance.

At 2:00 p.m., the youth innovative creativity centre Roboschool will hold a Space Lesson titled 'Why Do Cosmonauts Need Stars?'. The participants will be able to talk to the special guests, department head of the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre Evgeny Chernyak and the centre's astronavigation expert Tatyana Syreishchikova, and ask them questions. As before, the talk will be hosted by cosmonaut and Hero of Russia Fyodor Yurchikhin, President of the Cosmonautics and Aviation Centre. The project Space Lessons is his brainchild.

The Cosmonaut Training Centre instructors will tell the listeners about navigational stars and how cosmonauts can use them to determine the location of their ship.

The Space Lesson is free with advance registration. For those unable to attend, the event will be streamed live on the VDNH Odnoklassniki community. The viewers will be able to ask questions in the comments to the video. Evgeny Chernyak and Tatiana Syreishchikova will answer the most interesting questions live. The number of Space Lesson participants is limited to 40 people. Age restriction: 12+.

All VDNH events comply with the anti-coronavirus regulations for the time being in force. Visitors at VDNH museums and exhibition spaces are asked to wear face masks and gloves and observe social distancing. You can find more information on the anti-coronavirus measures at VDNH here.
