Russian news agency announces groundbreaking collaboration with Russian space agency


(MENAFN) RT has announced a groundbreaking collaboration with the Russian space agency Roscosmos, unveiling their ambitious project, Starbound. This initiative aims to bring ordinary individuals from around the globe into direct conversation with cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Scheduled to debut in late June, the inaugural segment of Starbound will facilitate live interviews between participants from India and the crew stationed on the orbital outpost.

Offering a unique opportunity for engagement, Starbound encourages individuals to submit their burning questions, tailored to garner insights that only those with firsthand space experience can provide. Aspiring participants are invited to share their queries with RT via email at ... for a chance to have them addressed by the ISS crew during the live broadcast. Additionally, the creators of the most compelling submissions will be rewarded with prizes that are truly out of this world.

Among the coveted prizes, one fortunate winner will embark on an extraordinary journey to Russia's state-of-the-art Vostochny Cosmodrome, located in the remote reaches of the Russian Far East. This cutting-edge facility stands as a testament to Russia's commitment to space exploration, offering a modern alternative to the historic Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Designed to accommodate both present and future spacecraft, Vostochny Cosmodrome witnessed a historic milestone last April with the maiden launch of Russia's Angara-A5 heavy-lift rocket.

With its innovative blend of interactive communication with cosmonauts aboard the ISS and the exhilarating prospect of witnessing a rocket launch firsthand, RT's Starbound initiative promises to captivate audiences and inspire a new generation of space enthusiasts worldwide.
