[04 FEB 99] COVENTRY TECHNICAL COLLEGE PRESS RELEASE
Russian Cosmonauts Visit Coventry Butts

Coventry Technical College has been fortunate to secure a prestigious visit by two leading members of a Russian Cosmonaut Team. The cosmonauts will be delivering lectures on space exploration as part of their latest UK tour. Pupils and students from local Schools, Colleges and Universities will have the opportunity to attend a one hour presentation which will cover the topic of space travel and supporting technologies.

Members of the public will also have the opportunity to find out about space exploration at a public presentation on Monday 8 March at 7.30pm in the College Theatre. Tickets will be available on the night priced at 2.00.

The presentation provides an excellent opportunity for people to increase their understanding of the subject – and offers a rare opportunity to ask questions of two individuals with direct experience of Space Travel. The cosmonauts will describe from first-hand experience the excitement of space exploration and living in orbit – from the first flight to the creation of the space station MIR.

The cosmonauts have an enviable reputation in the field of both research and space travel. Alexander Volkov has several space flights to his name, including acting as Chief of a Soviet-French team aboard the orbital research complex ‘Mir’. Alexander Martynov worked for several years at Space flight Mission Control and is currently the Foreign Relations Department Chief for the City of Korolev, which is one of Russia’s premier centres for Space Science and Technology.
