My name is Zhenya. I am 10. I was born in Moscow. It is my native city. I live in Mar’ino. It is a modern district with lots of tall houses and buildings. But I’d like to tell you about the place I like best. It is Star Town. We went there with my friend’s family. At first the place was called Green Town. It got the name of Star Town later. The town was built in 1965. It is 25 km to the north-east from Moscow. Russian cosmonauts and their families live there.
The Russian Cosmonauts Preparing Centre is placed in the town. It has got the name of Y. Gagarin. Fifty five scientists work in the Centre. Not only Russian cosmonauts but some cosmonauts from other countries train in the Centre too. There is a huge centrifuge where cosmonauts practise. The centrifuge is 5 metres wide and 30-40 metres long. It weighs 300 tons! When cosmonauts train in the centrifuge the doctors of the Centre watch them very attentively.
During the excursion you can also visit hydro-laboratory. It is a huge swimming pool with special equipment. In space cosmonauts must work, walk, sleep and eat in the state of weightlessness. They train to do it in the hydro-laboratory. There is a planetarium in Star Town. It is fantastic to look at the sky and watch the planets with their satellites, stars, comets and meteors. Special equipment is used to demonstrate solar and lunar eclipses.
In Star Town you must visit the Cosmonautics Museum. It was founded in 1967 by Y. Gagarin. The museum has got his name. Spaceships and their models, spacesuits and food, personal things and photos are kept in the museum. You can follow the history of space development there. We had a good time in Star Town. After our visiting the town I’m dreaming to be a cosmonaut.
