A modern guide to Kamchatka sent to space

A modern guide to Kamchatka sent to space

A modern guide to Kamchatka was sent to space. The book will complement the library of the International Space Station and help the crew in conducting a scientific experiment.

Photos of the book against the backdrop of the ISS porthole were published by the head of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Solodov on his page in Instagram. He said that a photo of the guidebook in orbit was shared by a space friend, an astronaut, Hero of the Russian Federation, Oleg Artemyev. The author of space photographs is the astronaut Ivan Wagner, which is now on the ISS on a long expedition.

It is noted that the book will help astronauts in carrying out the Hurricane experiment while observing the weather conditions of the peninsula from space. A close examination of the photographs shows that a bookmark with the inscription "no return" is inserted in the book. This means that a copy of the book will not be returned to earth, but will remain on board the space station for the entire duration of its service.

The book "Kamchatka. Modern Guide ”was first published in 2014 by PressPass, with support from the regional government. Thanks to the participation of the Kamchatka Exhibition and Investment Center and the Agency for Tourism and External Relations of the Kamchatka Territory, the book is supplemented every two years with relevant information and reprinted. So, the third edition of the guidebook, dated 2019, went into space.

According to Alexey Litvinov, PressPass CEO, if among the guidebooks of the Face to the Sun series, it would be necessary to single out the reference, the most, in all respects, this would most likely be a book about Kamchatka.

“Over the past years, the total circulation of this book has exceeded 20 thousand copies, the guidebook has received four full language versions at once - English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese - and this is a record among our books,” said Alexey Litvinov.

As the director of the Kamchatka Exhibition and Investment Center Vladimir Rusanov noted in an interview with EastRussia, the guidebook is the best guide for anyone who is interested in Kamchatka, plans a tourist trip or is interested in working in the region.

“We are very pleased that respected astronauts appreciated the book and even wanted to take it with them on a flight to the ISS,” admitted Vladimir Rusanov.
