In the framework of the first World Congress for Persons with Disabilities, more than 120 disabled people from Germany, England, Romania and Russia visited the Space Technology Museum of the RPA “Kosmoport” on September 8. Don’t forget that the global event is happening these days in the Ural capital. The main goal of the event is to intensify the global dialogue on the search for a new role of a person with disabilities and create an inclusive society.
As part of the excursion, the guests learned about the history of the creation of space vehicles, the first ballistic missiles. In addition, they independently “launched a rocket”, and also got acquainted with the civil products produced by the RPA.
According to Radu Furla, who came from Romania specifically to attend the congress, the museum made a very good impression on him. “This is truly a unique platform, which allows us to imagine how the space industry in general and in Russia in particular has developed. The launch of the missile was particularly interesting. For many people with disabilities this is a real miracle, “- said the guest.
711 persons with disabilities from 27 countries of the world, including the UK, China, Germany, the US, Austria, Argentina, Armenia, Belgium, Georgia, Denmark, Israel, India, Ireland, Kirghizia, Nepal, the Netherlands , Norway, Serbia, Tajikistan, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Finland, France, Switzerland, Sweden and New Zealand have come to Yekaterinburg to attend the congress.
