STAR CITY (Moscow region), June 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russian cosmonaut Sergei Ryazansky said on Monday that the technology of carrying the Olympic torch on a spacewalk is already mastered.
The cosmonaut spoke after the signing of a treaty between the Federal Space Agency and the Sochi Olympic Games Organizing Committee.
The crew of Ryazansky and Oleg Kotov, who will make a spacewalk with the torch, will get back to Earth in March 2014. “We will be watching the Olympic Games on computer screen,” Ryazansky said. “We have no possibility to watch competitions live, so we will watch them recorded,” he added.
He also said that his favorite winter kinds of sports are skiing, biathlon and hockey.
