Now this vehicle is situated right next to the Gagarin Museum at the Baikonur cosmodrome. It's kind of unsettling to come out of the building and find this right next door. alexpgp.

Gagarin's pad

Space center in Baikonur originated as a test launch site for the R-7 ICBM developed at Sergei Korolev's design bureau. The original facilities of the test range founded in 1955 included a single launch pad at Site 1, and an assembly building, known as MIK-2, located at Site 2. The processing area and the launch pad were connected by a railway. The first R-7 rocket blasted off from Site 1 in Tyuratam on May 15, 1957. The world's first artificial satellite was launched from the same pad on October 4, 1957. Baikonur Cosmodrome Site 31. After several years a new manned spaceflight was conducted from LC31.
