On Monday we had the honor of attending a reception in the town hall of Weil der Stadt (Germany) with the mayor and Kazakh Cosmonaut Aidyn Aimbetov.
He entered his name into the town’s Golden Book and then watered a tree planted in his honor. It was the 11th tree dedicated to a spaceflyer visiting our hometown.
The Kazakh Consul General and German astronaut Ernst Messerschmid also took part in this event. We had a fantastic day!
