There are Olympic Games. The Games happen in Russia. Russia is making the Games popular.

Russians cosmonauts take the Olympic torch to space. The torch is silver and red. Two cosmonauts hold the Torch. They show the torch to cameras.

They send the video back to Earth. People can watch it on the internet. Russians can watch it on TV, too.
