First rockets arrived at Russian new spaceport - "CosmodromeVostochny". Thanks to Marina, the only blogger who got there yet, we can see what's going on there these days!

She has seen the newest Russian Soyuz-2.1a rockets,and saw how the last inspections were made before the actual launch. Let's see what she found!

So the actual space rockets are already here.

The train was moving very slow  - probably 4km/h.


8.jpg

This actual rocket has no fuel inside yet.


9.jpg

The territory of the spaceport is secured by perimeter and also inside there is plenty of guards (some with dogs).

This tower serves all supplies to rockets. Thenafter it you can peek at the actual launch site.

13.jpg

The rocket passes thru the tower and the spaceport construction workers photograph it with their mobile phones and tablets.


14.jpg

The gap on both sides of the rocket inside thetower just a few centimeters.

Then the missile arrives at the launch site and will be raised. Marina says it takes a few hours for the specialists to prepare to raise it.


19.jpg

Then the actual raising operation lasts just four seconds. Then the tower (on left side) will arrive.


20.jpg


21.jpg

Because of the harsh local climes the equipment is designed to work even at minus 50 degrees centigrade.


22.jpg

This will be the first rocket launched from this new cosmodrome.

27.jpg


28.jpg


29.jpg

The snow here melts only in May.


30.jpg

This is a "gas bleeder" takes the exhaust gases out of the launching site.


31.jpg

If someone were here during launch he would see a fierce storm in an instant coming out of this opening above.


32.jpg

Here the mobile tower has arrived.


33.jpg

Ordinary workers wear red hats white hats are forthe managers and bosses.


34.jpg

They plan to finish it fully in seven more years.


35.jpg

It would be the only cosmodrome in Russia to launch missiles with cosmonauts on Russian territory.

Hope you liked this story!
