Nå er han her på feriereise. Men vi håper han kommer tilbake til oss senere for å fortelle oss og dere den spennede historien om sitt liv og hans reiser i verdensrommet!
Du kan også her se en film fra 50 års jubileet for Yury Gagarins første romferd, der
Georgy Grechko and Natalia Korolyova forteller sine historier om Gagarin. Kanskje en litt annen historie enn den vi fikk høre på det flotte foredraget om han i Møteserien vår , tidligere i vår.
The famous Russian cosmonaut Georgi Grechko is celebrating his 80th birth anniversary today. His school dream was to become a cosmonaut. And though at that time space flights seemed to be almost unreal, he managed to put his dream into practice. He made 3 space flights and a spacewalk, and each time he set a record. And though he is Twice Hero of the Soviet Union, Doctor of Science and the author of many scientific articles and books, he remains a romantic as before, and his current dream is to make a flight to Mars. After he graduated from the Leningrad Mechanical Institute, he started working in the Sergei Korolyov Design Bureau. He took part in the calculations concerning both the trajectory and the parameters of the first artificial Earth satellite, the first moon-bound rocket (lunik), and the first piloted spaceship. And when many-seat spaceships came into being, he felt that he finally would be able to realize his long-cherished dream, that is, to make a space flight.
