TsAGI Takes Part in ‘108 Minutes’ Space Fest

3 July 2023

Historically, TsAGI (a part of NRC “Zhukovsky Institute”) is closely linked to the outstanding space achievements of the country. Still, they would have been impossible without dedicated work of community of scientists, engineers and workers. Today, it becomes absolutely essential to involve young researchers into science popularization activities to attract new generation to the study of technology disciplines and to the work in aerospace industry.

TsAGI took part in the 4th ‘108 Minutes’ Space Fest, timed to coincide with the 60-year anniversary of space flight of Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman astronaut, and Pilot Cosmonaut Valery Bykovsky. The Fest was held from June 10 to 11 at Tsiolkovsky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics, Kaluga Town.

An interactive lecture on flight physics and history and prospects of aeromechanics and aircraft was given by Cand. Sc. Ivan Amelyushkin, Senior Researcher and Chairman of Research-and-Technology Committee at Primary Trade Labor Union, TsAGI. He spoke on the evolution of aeromechanics and aircraft, and on different aerohydrodynamic processes and advanced aerospace technologies. He showed bright physical experiments, such as aeroacoustic phenomena in gases, flight of bodies in airflow, tornadogenesis, lightning, turbulent flow visualization and vortex rings.

The Fest is established and organized by Tsiolkovsky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics, with the support of Roscosmos, Kaluga Region Government, Kaluga Municipal Government, and Association of Museums of Cosmonautics of Russia. The Fest aims to attract people to the space and science—the common deed for the whole humanity. The Fest had a broad cultural and educational program. The thematic locations included round tables, meetings with cosmonauts and science popularizers, exhibitions, master classes in aircraft and rocket modeling, etc.
