Witness a Space Rocket Launch in Kazakhstan!
If you are an astronaut, you can enjoy a free trip to space – take in the awe-inspiring views, experience weightlessness and cram down as much dehydrated food as possible (although go easy on the dehydrated chipotle shrimp tacos… you have to toilet in zero-gravity too…)
If, however, you didn’t have the foresight to train to become an astronaut (I didn’t either, don’t worry), a trip to witness a Space Rocket Launch is undoubtedly the next best thing.
This epic experience will see you begin in Moscow before enjoying a five-day mission in Kazakhstan. The highlight - watching the genuine launch of the iconic Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
Hang on. What does this epic five-day mission include?
While anyone in Kazakhstan with access to the sky can watch the rocket fly towards the edge of the stratosphere, you will be strategically placed at the exclusive observation point – just 1.4 km from the actual launch pad.
From this vantage point you can enjoy the tension and anticipation of this historic event's buildup, then the climax as the rocket finally launches in a cloud of flames, smoke and noise. It’s the show of a lifetime, so don’t forget the popcorn! (Better make that coffee actually… it launches at 2am.)
Of course, this experience includes some cool extras, such as a visit to the Baikonur museum, a trip to the International Space School, a press conference with the three main crew members, and an exclusive farewell ceremony for the cosmonauts before they make their trip.
See, there is more to Kazakhstan than Borat (just don't tell Sacha Baron Cohen).
