Cosmonaut training base may be built in South Ossetia. 15644.jpegRussian specialists are planning to build a base for cosmonauts training and rehabilitation in the territory of South Ossetia. This was reported by Novosti Georgia with reference to the Experts Club Georgian public organization.


The idea of establishing the base belongs to astronaut Mikhail Kornienko. In his opinion, there are conditions for establishing such center in the territory of Tskhinval. The astronaut visited Tskhinvali on the eve of the Cosmonautics Day.

"The midlands with a height of 1,5 - 2 km prevailing in South Ossetia is just the altitude providing light hypoxia that strengthens immunity and encourages the body. Besides, there are a lot of hydrosulfuric springs that are so necessary for rehabilitating the cosmonauts' apparatus system after the flights", - Kornienko remarked.
