It’s time to tick an item off your bucket list.

Have you ever wanted to see a rocket launch?

Will you be in Kazakhstan on December 7th or December 17th?

Two launches are planned from Baïkonur Space Station in Kazakhstan before the end of 2017.

It is very expensive to get on-site and you need to send you application to the Russian government months is advance.

We have the alternative: The Kazakh Steppe is huge and flat… we can see that launch from hundreds of kilometers away. Let’s watch it from the steppe, have a Kazakhs-style picnic and take a drive around the space port.
