Dear Readers!

On the website of the library, in the section Electronic resources – Electronic thematic folders, you can familiarize yourself with articles from periodicals dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the first flight of a Kazakhstani into space.

When it comes to manned space flights, Kazakhstanis have a special reason to be proud. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the launch into the endless Universe of the Hero of the Soviet Union, Major General of Aviation, Chevalier  of the Order of the Republic of Kazakhstan “ХалықҚаһарманы ” ToktarAubakirov.

In his biography, the word “first” is often found. He was the first in the USSR to make a non-stop flight to the North Pole area with two refuelings in the air. On November 1, 1989, he made the first landing and the first takeoff of an experienced shipborne fighter MiG-29K from the deck of the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov”. He became the first Kazakh cosmonaut. As you know, in 1991 from October 2 to October 10, or rather 7 days 22 hours 13 minutes, our renowned fellow countryman was on board the Soyuz TM-13 spacecraft as a research cosmonaut. In orbit, he carried out experiments on the first Kazakh space program “Ғарыш-Қазақстан”.
