Space tourists from all over the world gather at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, in the middle of the Kazakh steppe, to see the launch of the Soyuz rocket with International Space Station crews onboard.
We followed some of them during an intensive tour of the city and the Cosmodrome back in 2013. They shared their impressions about this unique site and the excitement of the countdown.
The Baikonur Cosmodrome began taking shape 60 years ago, and it remains today humankind’s gateway to space.
