Monument to Russia's Conquest of Space
The Monument to Russia's Conquest of Space is in Moscow. This huge Tower representing a rocket soaring to the heights with a great trail is a bold sculpture made out of titanium.
Underneath there is the Space
Museum, which commemorates Yuri Gagarin.
The plaque at the base of the monument.
Yuri Gagarin's space suit and capsule.
And yes these really are the actual artifacts.
Space exploration equipment on show includes this LUNOKHOD, an eight-wheeled vehicle which the
Russians landed on the Moon and went driving around on the
surface of the moon at around the time of the NASA Apollo
landings. Incidentally, the one in the museum is the SPARE. The
other one is still on the moon!
