Russian Centre to commemorate Cosmonautics Day

Participants will have a chance to learn more about international cosmology and the Russian Space Station.

Notably, the film The Age of Pioneers will be screened. The Russian historical drama directed by Dmitriy Kiselev focuses on cosmonaut Alexey Leonov. Leonov served as a consultant for the film.

Additionally, an exhibition about Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova, the first woman to have flown in space, will be held at the Russian centre. She was selected from more than 400 applicants and five finalists to pilot Vostok 6 on June 16, 1963.
