Space flight of Kazakhstan’s astronaut Aidyn Aimbetov to the International Space Station is a milestone event for Kazakhstan.
We cannot cope without Russia. Russia is home to all the technology, space industry facilities, all the rocket stuff: Talgat Mussabayev.
According to him, the level of language competency and expertise of Bolashak bursary holders leaves much to be desired.
KazSat-2 is functioning normally, it is currently 64% loaded and we plan to achieve a 70% load of the satellite by the end of the year: Talgat Mussabayev.
Earlier Head of KazKosmos National Space Agency announced that Kazakhstan and Russian are working out a new agreement to gradually edge away from lease-based relations over the Baikonur cosmodrome.
The whole world celebrates the Cosmonautics day [renamed by the UN to the International Day of Human Space Flight] April 12 to commemorate the first flight of Yuri Gagrin to space in 1961: Mussabayev.
Kazakhstan’s communications satellite KazSat-2 will be operable starting from late October 2011.
It’s time to sit down and think if we really need the project that is likely not to pay back. The risks are huge: Mr. Mussabayev.
There are two prospective cosmonauts, but they are facing lack of opportunities as Russia-made Soyuz rockets are now the only means of transporting cosmonauts of all countries to the ISS: Talgat Mussabayev, Head of the National Space Agency KazKosmos.
According to Talgat Mussabayev, KazKosmos Head, the plan is hampered by the current lack of places aboard Soyuz spaceships.
Talgat Mussabayev from Kazakh National Space Agency spoke about Russia's profit from Baikonur. Kazakhstan needs ways to continue the cosmodromes operations in case Russia moves away to its own space centers.
