Russia is rich in traditions and has vast experience in the field of space exploration and, undoubtedly, is the world leader in space development. Our country accomplished the first launch of a manned spacecraft into outer space, the first-ever space walk in outer space, and the first visit to the cis-lunar space.
In November 1970, the Soviet Lunokhod became the world’s first planet research vehicle to operate successfully on the lunar surface.
July 13, 2019, was marked by a successfully launch of a Proton-M launch vehicle with a Spectr-RG space astrophysical observatory.
Currently, new promising manned spacecraft Orel (Eagle) is under development. The first launch is scheduled for 2023, docking with the ISS in 2024, and in 2025 manned flights will start.
The postal block with three stamps provides images of Russian space science achievements: the first self-propelled vehicle Lunokhod-1 (1970), space astrophysical observatory Spectr-RG (2019), and promising manned spacecraft Orel (2025).
