First Russian Space Exhibition Ever

Posted on August 22, 2012 by team

There used to be an interesting exhibition hall in Moscow, it was called “Cosmos” and was devoted to the Soviet achievements in space development. Boys of those days were often taken there by parents. Leaving they were sure they wanted to become cosmonauts one day.

These very photos were taken in the “Cosmos” exhibition hall in approximately 1969.

Space rocket R7

“Vostok” spaceship

“Proton” heavy station launched by rocket R500 (that was later called “Proton”) .

Station “Luna-9″, the first non-destructive landing on the Moon

Station “Venera-4″

Most of the exhibits of that wonderful place are lost today and their destiny in unknown, even no lists remained…

    It is a shame that this place no-longer exist.

    If the final comment is correct that is more than very sad. Whatever one might think of it, history does exist and needs to be preserved whenever possible

    You know a lesson in proper English is not enough here. You need to get your f*cking eyes checked: “Proton” heavy station launched by rocket R500 (that was later called “Proton”) .
    Where exactly do you see a “rocket” in that picture? Maybe you saw an elephant there also, or Elvis?
