We continue the tour. Today, we’ll l watch the story of space that I saw personally and remember how it was. We start of course from the station “Mir”.
Layout of “Mir” station. In addition to this layout there is a layout in 1:1 scale…
Gateway special compartment (GSC) of orbital station “Mir” made for exit of the astronaut in a spacesuit “Orlan D” in open space without depressurization of working and living compartments.
Working compartment on space station “Mir”.
Toilet of “Mir” station. Original flushing handle in the form of an emergency brake)))
The sleeping compartment.
The vehicle for movement of astronaut 21KS (VMA), set up to work together with the spacesuit “Orlan DMA”. In February 1990, the cosmonauts A. Victorenko and A. Serebrov tested 21KS SPK device in space, and circled “Mir” station. The device was not too comfortable.
The duration of autonomous work without refueling – more than 6 hours (6 hours)
The intrinsic speed – 30 m / s (24.4 m / s)
Mass is less than 180 kg (150 kg)
Total exit into space – at least 15
Max allowable speed – 1 m / s
Max angular velocity – 10 ° / s
Precision of automatic stabilization – 0.5 … 5 ° (0,5 ° / s)
The maximum distance: from station “Mir” – 60 m (with harnesses) from the ship “Buran” – 100 m
The space suit “Orlan”.
A toolbar for performing of maintenance and repairs on the space station, including metal cutting, drilling and thread cutting.
Tools for working in open space.
Another example of the space toilet. It is terrible to imagine for what this brown pear with a metal cone is necessary!
Emergency supply for picnics
Picnic while waiting for rescuers.
I was also born in the USSR.
Automatic station “Luna-16”. In September 1970 it travelled “Earth-Moon-Earth” and first in the world automatically brought to Earth samples of lunar soil.
Right on the rod there is a probe for soil collection.
“Lunokhod -1” – the world’s first automatic self-propelled machine, delivered by station “Luna – 17” for comprehensive research on the lunar surface. The duration of the active functioning is 306 days: from 17 November 1970 to 4 October 1971.
Gift from competitors.
Competitors are, however, on crutches.
The space suit “Crechet” for spacewalks and work of cosmonaut-researcher on the lunar surface. It was developed in the second half of the 1960s for N1-L3 program, which provides the exit for one astronaut on the moon.
Layouts of space stations.
Local MCC. Online broadcast of ISS flight.
Baikonur cosmodrome’s launch complex with the carrier rocket “Soyuz”.
Launch complex-39 – the American launch complex on the territory of the Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida. It is used to launch the ship «Space Shuttle». The first was the launch of the “Columbia” ship on April 12, 1981. Owned by NASA. It covers an area of 567 km².
International space-rocket complex “Sea Launch”. Space-rocket complex “Sea Launch” – is a joint project of four countries: the USA, Russia, Norway, Ukraine. Space-rocket complex “Sea Launch” is used to launch spacecraft from the Pacific Ocean.
The scheme of the missile.
Reusable space transportation system “Energia-Buran”.
Ejection seat K-36RB, for Space Shuttle “Buran”.
It is a pity that flew only once.
“Soyuz” spaceship on the left. (Habitation module, the lander spacecraft “Soyuz TMA-4”, device-service module.)
“Diamond” manned orbital station.
Docking layout of OPS “Almaz” and transport ship supply. Manned orbital station “Almaz” was intended to perform defense-related problems with the delivery of information in the descent capsule or through radio channels, as well as to carry out tasks in the national economic and scientific fields. The crew should have been consisted of 2-3 people.
Developed by engineering and design bureau “Salute” by order of the Ministry of Defence. It was created under the leadership of General Designer V.N Chelomey under the “Almaz” space rocket complex. The first expedition was to the “Diamond” station, which received the name “Salyut-3”. The crew with the commander P.R.Popovich and flight engineer Y.P Artyukhin launched on a spacecraft “Soyuz-14” on July 3, 1974 and worked for 15 days.
Weight (launching) – 18.9 m
Length – 11.6 m
Maximum diameter – 4.15 m
Reconstruction of the museum.
The history of the monument building.
I want to end tour on this. I must say that I liked the museum, and want to visit it again, for a thoughtful watching. The level is very high, there are a lot of multimedia stands, there is a cinema, a souvenir shop is also very cool, in addition to the banal magnets, there are more interesting souvenirs.
