Postcard from Doug: Watch the rollout of the Soyuz spacecraft from Inside the Russian Space Program
Over the last few years, I’ve been fortunate enough to lead several small groups of travelers on our special tour, Inside the Russian Space Program. It’s hard for me to describe the amazing experience of being there at the Russian cosmodrome in Kazakhstan watching an actual manned space launch. Here is a little taste of one of my favorite parts of the whole experience – the rollout of the Soyuz rocket.
What an awesome sight!

This year, if all goes well, there will be a special bonus: the famous British singer, Sarah Brightman, is in training and scheduled to join the space crew as a paying customer. Who knows what kind of excitement this will add to an already exciting adventure?
