European Space Camp 2017 experienced the visit of Russian cosmonaut Andrei Borisenko, who had just gotten back to Earth after commanding the International Space Station for six months until April of 2017. In honour of Yuri Gagarin, the first person to reach space, participants named their rocket Poyekhali, meaning “Let’s go!”

“The camp was a really great experience, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of meeting students from all over the world who have the same passion for science, and meeting all the scientists, and especially a cosmonaut! I dreamed about going to this camp for about 3 years and finally my dream came true!”
