“After the launch in 1957 of the first artificial Earth satellite in the language of the cosmos began all over the world. Changed on the future, and this is reflected in fashion, architecture and design. People were interested in the issues of designing objects for the new space age. Our exhibition will tell about the development of designers, architects, and engineers directly associated with space exploration. Viewers will see photos of the exterior and interior design of the spaceship “Federation” (“eagle”), find out what tools are needed for the astronauts living and working on space stations and what kind of equipment your employees are using ground-based space services”, — said the Director of the Museum Natalia artyukhina.
The virtual exhibition consists of five sections. The first one is called “Origins of cosmic design.” Virtual visitors will see drawings of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, from the album “Space travel” and photos taken at the First world exhibition of interplanetary machines and mechanisms, held in Moscow in 1927.

Thanks to the fourth section, “the Provision of professional activities of cosmonauts” visitors will learn what tools are needed for the astronauts living and working on space stations in zero gravity and what kind of equipment your employees are using the aerospace services.
Fifth section, “Space suits and flying clothing” will devote the fashion. Visitors will see how the years have changed the astronaut suit and what guided the designers when creating badges and emblems for programs “”Soyuz” — “Apollo” and “Intercosmos”, and space missions on the Mir station and the ISS.
