    “The people of Kazakhstan have been waiting for this flight for 30 years. For 30 years from the land of Kazakhstan, spacecraft with cosmonauts have risen into space, ”Aubakirov said.

    In space, he was engaged in scientific work. Investigated myself. He remembers all the sensations now.

    “I set myself the task of examining my body, how it will withstand all this. Fortunately, everything went well. The only thing, after landing, I took off my stockings with my skin. Because there was no blood supply there, and the skin, it turns out, is dying off, ”the astronaut said.

    The flight lasted eight days. The astronaut says everything went smoothly.

    “The only thing, freelance, we were greeted with strong disappointment, when on the descent began to sway strongly. It swayed so strongly that for the second time in history the shell shattered when the ball body hit, ”Aubakirov said in detail.

    The photographer Anatoly Ustinenko worked at that launch. The photographs from thirty years ago show Aubakirov as a member of the Soyuz TM-13 crew.

    “We were tense, you could see it by the faces, by the starting command. And then, as soon as the rocket took off with the crew, for 10 seconds, a minute flies in slow motion, and then – right – and left, and everyone clapped, ”recalls Ustitenko.

    Nobody has such photos, Anatoly Vasilyevich admits. They show Aubakirov with his family. The whole country respects him for his honesty and openness, says the photographer.

    “He worked in a field where you always have to tell the truth, because not only his life depended on it in flight or on a test site on the same centrifuge. Why would you lie if your head or vestibular apparatus does not work well? ”Ustinenko said.

    After space exploration, Aubakirov went into politics, held high leadership positions in Kazakhstan. Now he lives in a house on the outskirts of Nur-Sultan, brings up his grandchildren and dreams that one of them will continue his space business.

    Among the distinctions of Toktar Aubakirov is the title of “People's Hero”. In Kazakhstan, he is awarded for outstanding achievements in front of the country.
