Take your own history-making first
One of the greatest moments in world history featured
one small step..that incredible day in June of 1969 when
Neil Armstrong took his first step on the moon.
Now, we're inviting you to take your own history-making
first step, by becoming one of the first tourists in the
world to apply to Russia's Cosmonaut Training Program.
There are four training steps that all aspiring cosmonauts
must complete prior to embarking on a mission into space:
Step One: Medical Qualification Evaluation
Step Two: Theoretical Lessons, Lectures and Active
Hands-On Simulator Training
Step Three: Learning how to work as valuable member
of a cosmonaut team.
Step Four: Actual training with other members of
your assigned mission team.
Step One: Am I Space Worthy? $179,000 US
Your first step to becoming "space worthy"
is the Medical Qualification Phase. This 16 day/15 night
cosmonaut adventure has been designed by experts to determine
if you have "the right stuff" to train for space
You will undergo the most intense medical examination
of your life. Over the course of ten days, you will be
given a variety of detailed medical tests at Moscow's
Institute of Medical and Biological Problems.
The IMBP was established in 1963 and is the Institute
responsible for all aspects of medical and biological
support for humans in space, from selection of cosmonauts
to in flight support and rehabilitation. You will receive
all the same tests given to IMBP's "normal clients";
Russia's top test pilots and scientists hoping to be accepted
into Russia's Space Program.
As part of your cosmonaut qualification course, you'll
receive an introduction to space training which includes
~ Hypobaric altitude chamber testing
~ Hands-on training on Star City's many simulators.
~ Orlan space suit training.
~ Centrifuge training
~ Vestibular training
~ Personal zero-gravity flight
~ Instruction and sample space mission in the hydrolab
~ Flight to the edge of space in a Russian MiG-31
**In the event medical tests show you are ineligible
for hydrolab training, we will substitute a supersonic
flight in a MiG-29 jet fighter.
Some of these training activities will take place at
the Gromov Flight Research Center outside Moscow, and
some will take place at legendary Star City.
What else is included:
During your 16 days/15 nights in Moscow, you will
enjoy luxury accommodations and meals at the Golden Ring
Swiss Diamond Hotel, located on historic Arbat Street.
Our expert Moscow staff will see to virtually your every
need, escorting you on tours of the city and space facilities
and providing you with translator services and a look
into Russian life few outsiders will ever see.
There is no guarantee you will qualify for the Official
Cosmonaut Training Program. In fact, the odds are against
you. Only a select few will meet the stringent physical
requirements necessary to travel to the International
Space Station and other destinations among the stars.
We can, however, guarantee you a truly memorable experience
unlike any other in the world.
