Federal Space Agency chief Anatoly Perminov is to congratulate the International Space Station's crew on Cosmonautics Day
Federal Space Agency chief Anatoly Perminov is to congratulate the International Space Station's crew on Cosmonautics Day, without leaving for the mission-control center outside Moscow. Nor will Perminov have to leave the Federal Space Agency building in Moscow for this purpose. In short, Perminov will congratulate the ISS crew from a special central information center. "On April 12 the Federal Space Agency's chief will chat with the ISS crew (namely, Salizhan Sharipov and Leroy Chiao) from a new central information center that was established April 5 at the Federal Space Agency," RIA Novosti learned from the agency's spokesperson here today. In his words, the versatile central information center receives data from all enterprises of the space-rocket industry. This center makes it possible to hold direct communications sessions with ISS crews. Previously, such sessions could only take place from the mission-control center near Moscow. Perminov first talked to Sharipov and Chiao April 5. "I will now be able to chat with you more often because we have established permanent communications with the ISS from the Federal Space Agency's building," Perminov said back then. Meanwhile Russian cosmonauts, members of the so-called Star Squad, will gather in an impressive setting near Ternovka village in the Saratov region (middle reaches of the Volga river), reports the regional information and public-relations ministry. The world's first space traveler Yury Gagarin had landed there exactly 44 years ago. The Saratov region is to receive Russian pilot-cosmonaut, Hero of the Russian Federation and Honorary Citizen of Engels Yury Shargin, Heroes of the Soviet Union Gennady Sarafanov and Igor Volk, members of the Russian Cosmonautics Academy named after Tsiolkovsky and the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as Gagarin's companions and aerospace-industry specialists. All these people will attend a festive rally, laying flowers at a monument to the first cosmonaut in history. They will also meet students of the Saratov industrial and teacher-training college where Gagarin had studied.
