The first aero-cosmic center for pupils will be opened in Bashkiria on the base of the school N93 in Ufa.

“The equipment for virtual acquaintance with space will be installed here and we will further continue the work, directed at widening of educational interest in space” – the Minister for education RB Alfis Gayazov has stated yesterday during solemn ceremony of opening the innovational-educational center for cosmic services at the Bashkir State University.

Besides, as the Minister has mentioned, one more trip of pupils from Bashkortostan to the cosmodrome “Baikonur” is scheduled on May. One year ago a group of pupils from our Republic has already paid a visit to this space center and watched the start of a piloted space shuttle there.
