For historical reasons, Ukraine now represents one of the most powerful states in the domain of space and aviation. Possessing the great heritage of talented scientists and designers, our country made its significant contribution into development and formation of the world space technologies, and today it actively participates in “peaceful space” programs. The National Aerospace Educational Center of Youth, taking up the torch of space exploration, enthusiastically works in the sphere of recruitment, renewal and motivation of the young generation of scientists. This generation grows from today’s children dreaming and chalking fantastic flying vehicles, and tomorrow they shall build interplanetary spacecrafts and implement amazing technologies in various spheres of economy and production. All of them strive for making their common dream real, for the benefit of mankind.
