Brief Baikonur history and description:
Baikonur Cosmodrome, located in Kazakhstan, is the world's first and largest operational space launch facility. The first satellite launch in 1957 and the first manned space flight of Yuri Gagarin in 1961 took place in Baikonur. The launch pad used for both missions was later named Gagarin's Start.
The launch pad has already sent more than 600 rockets to the space. Today it is also used for sending cosmonauts to the International Space Station. Baikonur was leased to Russia until 2050. Under the current Russian space program, Baikonur remains a busy spaceport, with numerous commercial, military, and scientific missions being launched annually. All crewed Russian spaceflights are launched from Baikonur.
The spaceport is located in the desert steppe of Baikonur, about 200 kilometres (124 mi) east of the Aral Sea and north of the river Syr Darya.
