The Hero of Russia, cosmonaut and candidate of pedagogical sciences Sergei Revin will come to Ufa on April 10. In the capital of Bashkortostan, he arrives as an honoured guest at the first anniversary of the Gagarin Centre.
In addition to participating in the celebrations, a meeting with the young Gagarin Centre members is planned.

He will speak about what scientific activity can be done in space, and answer the questions of children.
Sergei Revin, the Russian test cosmonaut, is the 113th cosmonaut of Russia (the USSR) and 526th in the world.

In 2013 he defended his thesis at Moscow Humanitarian University.
