Living in space

Zero gravity, vacuum seal soup, vacuum seal cookies, cans, dry hair shampoos … Get to know and take a look at a small pebble in a mosaic of living on the International Space Station.

The exhibition about living in space can get you closer to the idea of living on the International Space Station presented through a 3-minute film. This complex presents real food that astronauts take to space. The space food is made and processed especially for nourishment of astronauts in space. The real exhibit pieces and methods of food packaging are presented. The pieces presented at our Center were received by the NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik and by the institutions Yuri Gagarin’s Museum – Roscosmos and Tsiolkovsky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics – Kaluga.

There is also a model of the GALILEO satellite, forming the European navigational system, which provides very accurate and guarantied services of global positioning under civil control. A model of
one of the thirty satellites in its natural size 1 x 1 x 9 m is presented, the original of which was launched into space in 2011 by ESA.
