In cooperation with the Russian Space Agency, HASSE students ventured into a summer journey of history, art, religion, and most important of all, Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center at Star City on July 18th-27th , 2019.

Cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov greeted HASSE students with a warm message. Salizhan encouraged everyone to search for happiness. As mentioned by cosmonaut Salizhan, HASSE students acquired knowledge to learn about ways to stay healthy in space, explore the complicated design and multi-functional surface space in the space station, built a tee-pee at the wilderness survival training session, and operate Mir and Soyuz mocking and rendezvous using simulators.

These hands-on tasks allowed HASSE students to work as a team and communicated effectively with each other. They also discovered their passion in life through these practices.

Cosmonaut Salizhan concluded his message to HASSE students by wishing them luck.
