ASTANA, July 16. /TASS/. Chairman of the Aerospace Committee of Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Investment and Development (Kazcosmos) Talgat Musabayev has met head of the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) Igor Komarov during his working visit to Moscow on Thursday, the Kazcosmos press service has said.
"The two sides discussed preparations for the forthcoming space mission of Kazakh cosmonaut Aidyn Aimbetov. They also considered the main directions of the scheduled science experiments during the space flight involving Aimbetov," the press release says. It also notes that a group of scientists has been formed to develop Kazakhstan’s space travel program. The group will be led by President of the National Center For Space Research and Technology, Professor Jumabek Jantaev.
According to media reports, Roscosmos selected Kazakh cosmonaut Aydin Aimbetov for space travel to the International Space Station (ISS) instead of British singer Sarah Brightman, who refused to fly to outer space due to family circumstances. Currently, Aimbetov has passed all required flight tests and exams.
The blast-off of the Soyuz TMA-18M from Baikonur Cosmodrome is scheduled for September 1. The crew will also include Russian spaceman Sergey Volkov and European astronaut Andreas Mogensen.
