Oleg Artemyev visited the museum detailing the plant history and production sites, including the assembly and welding shop, where the launcher for the R-7 intercontinental ballistic missile was assembled and tested. It was the missiles that launched the first artificial Earth satellite, the spaceship with Belka and Strelka, and the famous Gagarin Vostok into orbit.
After touring the manufacturing plant, Oleg Artemyev held a meeting with Power Machines employees, where he detailed cosmonaut training, answered questions, and also signed autographs.
The guest of honor presented the LMZ history museum with valuable exhibits that have been in space: one of four engines for ballistic descent, as well as flags of Russia and St. Petersburg with the ISS seals. Oleg Artemyev also made an entry into the book of distinguished visitors, like his colleague, the first cosmonaut in the world, Yuri Gagarin, who visited the LMZ in 1962.
