Несколько дней назад, исполнилось ровно пятьдесят пять лет со дня посадки космического корабля «Восход-2» на территории Пермского края, управляемого летчиками-космонавтами Алексеем Леоновым и Павлом Беляевым. В краевом архиве сохранились документы и фотографии, посвященные этому полету, который стал одним из главных событий в истории космонавтики. Во время этого полета произошел первый выход человека в открытый космос. Из-за неисправности автоматической системы ориентации корабль был посажен вручную штурманом Павлом Беляевым, который включил тормозной двигатель. Нештатная посадка корабля произошла в лесу Усольского района. В морозном лесу отважные космонавты провели двое суток, а потом их нашли спасатели. На вертолете космонавтов доставили на местный аэродром, где их засыпали вопросами журналисты. Два героя с улыбками на губах и с озорной искоркой в глазах отвечали на все их вопросы. За дни пребывания на Пермской земле много было роздано автографов. В торжественной обстановке в Пермском аэропорту космонавтов радостно приветствовали пермяки и кто-то, из встречавших, подарил им плетенные русские лапти. Спустя три года после этого события встреча на Пермской земле повторилась, космонавты вновь в марте прилетели к гостеприимным пермякам. Алексей Леонов еще несколько раз приезжал к нам в Пермь. В 1983 году на месте приземления «Восхода -2» был поставлен обелиск, на открытие которого приехал Алексей Леонов. И вновь были интересные интервью и автографы знаменитого космонавта.

Очень много прекрасных музыкальных и театральных мероприятий планировалось провести в начале весны этого года. Но, увы, это все пришлось отменить из-за вируса, который в нашу жизнь ввел свои грустные коррективы. Из-за запрета массовых мероприятий в нашем городе, как и по всей стране, отменяются концерты, спектакли, фестивали. А горожане заранее готовились к праздникам искусства и приобретали билеты на эти мероприятия. Теперь нужно сдать приобретенные заранее билеты и получить обратно деньги в городских зрелищных кассах. Билетный оператор попросил всех, кто приобрел билеты, запастись терпением, так как из-за несостоявшихся концертов организаторы вынуждены приостановить возврат денег на месяц. Каждый организатор определенного мероприятия должен решить примерную дату переноса мероприятия или же полностью его отмены и тогда будут установлены примерные сроки возврата денег за билеты. Об этом нам сообщат ведомства, к которым относятся запланированные мероприятия.
