Such a shame UK will never be able to visit the vostok 1 capsule :-(
Dec 2012
I know it's a sad tone to take - but I thought I'd let everyone from the UK And possibly the world know that unfortunately it's for Russian eyes only.
I have a huge amount of respect for their achievement (sending the first man into space) and after the opportunity has arisen to travel eastwards, I have tried for weeks and weeks to sort everything out to travel into Russia, to the RKK energiya museum where the capsule of vostok 1 is stored. I even used a Russian translator to write emails and faxes and when they did respond, they said that basically due to security issues, only Russian tourists can visit it. He did say that we can visit the launch vehicle but as I'm sure you all agree this is small money compared to viewing the relic of the last significant endeavour our species has ever done.
I also learnt on my quest that one of the reasons security is so tight is that the museum is situated on the grounds of a working mission control and factory where they produce their space exploration vehicles and any tour of the place has to be booked a month in advance
Sorry to drag the tone down a bit but I thought its best people know early to avoid dissappointment.

As a parting note - I'd like to stress this isn't a dig at the museum whatsoever - I'd love to have visited and respect their decision to remain clandestine - it's purely information only
