Imagine Science Films is excited to present a satellite festival in Kaluga, Russia this December. With its rich astronautics heritage — home of pioneering space travel theorist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and site of the State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics opened by Yuri Gagarin — Kaluga will lend an inspiring context to five programs of films drawn from this year’s Imagine Science Film Festival and beyond, spanning from astrophysics and interstellar exploration to the cutting edges of robotics and genetics.
