On April 12, 2021, the Shamakhy Astrophysical Observatory ANAS named after N.Tusi and the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering jointly organized an online seminar dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the “World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day”. It should be noted that on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin flew into space for the first time from the Baikonur Cosmodrome of the Soviet Union in the Vostok spacecraft, and returned to Earth after a successful 108-minute flight. Due to this significant event, this date is celebrated in many countries around the world as “World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day”.
The seminar began with an introductory speech by Fakhranda Alimardanova. She informed the students about this significant day and the purpose of the seminar. Then the employee of the Shamakhy Astrophysical Observatory named after N.Tusi, Doctor of Philosophy in Physics and Mathematics, Associate Professor Adalat Atayi made a presentation. The speaker brought to the attention of the seminar participants interesting, new information and knowledge about space flights.
