The International Space Congress will be held in Belarus next year. This decision was taken at a meeting of the Association of Space Flight Participants in Toulouse. Among other contenders were Italy, Ukraine and Lithuania. As a presentation, the Belarusian delegation showed a video about our country's contribution to space science and those, thanks to whom these achievements were made possible. The Space Congress is usually held in early autumn. It features dozens of presentations, lectures, and lively discussions. Delegates discuss national space programs, safety issues and the future of our planet. An Alley of Astronauts is to be laid out in Minsk during the Congress.
