MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov, who will go to the International Space Station (ISSS) on July 20, plans to participate in charity projects when he is on the orbit, he said in an interview with the Gagarin Research and Test Cosmonaut Training Center released on Monday.
During the flight in 2010, Skvortsov, NASA astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson and the other ISS crewmembers made a movie about the station for the deaf and dumb using the sign language.
"I never make any premature plans. Still, I can say that I will participate in charity projects that will be from the heart," Skvortsov said in response to the question on whether he has any socially significant projects for the upcoming ISS mission.
The cosmonaut specified that "all is done from the heart and is always of good quality and is for people’s joy and benefit."
The carrier rocket Soyuz-FG with the spacecraft Soyuz MS-13 and three members of the ISS mission on board will be launched on July 20. Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov and astronauts Andrew Morgan (NASA) and Luca Parmitano (European Space Agency) will go to the International Space Station.
