This presentation illustrates the outstanding achievements of the USSR, and later Russia, in the study and exploration of space during the past century, including the flight of the first artificial Earth satellite and orbital station MIR. It outlines man's eternal dreams of fathoming the mysteries of the Universe and the process whereby leading Soviet scientists developed and brought to fulfillment the theoretical and practical principles of cosmonautics.
Most of the presentation describes and illustrates the various stages of preparation and training for cosmonauts and the carrying out of manned space flights of different durations, starting from the first in history, accomplished by Yuri Gagarin and finishing by International Programs at ISS.
