Space Museum

Pretty amazing sculptures to show the location of the space museum, although I had to walk all the way around to find the entrance!

The first Russian space suit was really short!

Space dogs. Belka and Strelka. These are the ones that went into space, orbited and came back and survived.

Space inspired art and adverts.

I am loving the little porcelain figurines. Such a random thing to have a figure of, a spaceman!

Inside the space capsule.

This is where I get lost, I need to research my space history here, but from what I remember there was almost a race between Russia and the USA to get to the moon first. Here is a picture of a flag and a bit of space dirt, which was presented to the Russians, by Nixon. It says they took the flag into space and back and collected the dirt for the Russians. Is it me, or is that a ‘in your face, we got there first’ gesture?

This is the space suit of the astronaut of Michael Collins who was aboard the Apollo 1 which landed on the moon.

Don’t know about you, but if I traveled all the way to the moon, I’m going outside to have a gander!

Then all we get is all the Luna robot information. So we landed on the moon, then after that we just send robots? Wouldn’t we send the robots first?

I still have a lot of questions about space! Maybe I should visit NASA next!
