    This book is, in essence, sixteen years in the making. First attempted to compile a history of the Soviet space program in author put together a rough chronology of the main events. A decade later, while living on a couch in a college friend's apartment, he began writing what would be a short history of the Soviet lunar landing program.   The Soviets put their first space station, Salyut 1, into orbit in Since then, in spite of two failures, they have successfully orbited the total of six. As mentioned at the beginning of this presentation, Soviet space efforts can be divided into two parts: military and scientific. This is also true within the manned space station program.

This concise history is the first book in a new series on the Soviet space program and features many rare photographs, diagrams, and charts. When Soviet rocket experts examined the first Nazi V-2s in earlythey immediately realized that their own technology was years behind what the Germans had developed/5(5).

Despite consuming 40% of the Soviet manned space program's budget during the 80s, Buran only flew once and remains a beguiling and fascinating anomaly. Today, the program seems to be a source of both pride and embarrassment to the Russians/5(4). Having explored most of the American manned space program, I thought it would be refreshing to take a look at the Soviet space program as well, to compare and contrast how they worked together.

Unfortunately, the book was written in or so and published inbefore the fall of communism in the Soviet Union/5(8). The Soviet Space Program book.

Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. The N1 was the booster rocket for the Soviet manned moon program 5/5. Despite the title, much of this book is a narrative history of the seriously dysfunctional manner in which the Soviet space program functioned, the petty feuds between chief designers, and the lack of direction and support from the Review of the Soviet space program book government/5(3).

I was pretty disappointed by Eugen Reichl's "Saturn V: America's Rocket to the Moon," and considering the negative reviews of Schiffer's book on the early Soviet space program, I hesitated quite a bit before buying this one.

The result isn't perfect, but it's a much better book on the whole and an effective jumping off point for further research/5(11). The Soviet Space Shuttle. Author: Bart Hendrickx,Bert Vis; Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media ISBN: Category: Technology & Engineering Page: View: DOWNLOAD NOW» This absorbing book describes the long development of the Soviet space shuttle system, its infrastructure and the space agency’s plans to follow up the first historic unmanned mission.

Asif Siddiqi is one of the foremost experts on Soviet space history. His book “The Red Rockets’ Glare” showcases his meticulous research into the early Soviet space program.

Particularly. In Energiya-Buran: the Soviet Space Shuttle, the authors describe the long development path of the Soviet space shuttle system, consisting of the Energiya rocket and the Buran orbiter. The program eventually saw just one unmanned flight in November before the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union sealed its fate.

After a Foreword provided by lead Buran test pilot Igor 5/5(2). the only one I found that has any information about the soviet space program is Janes Spaceflight Directory. my copy was printed in before the challenger disaster but it was fairly comprehensive.

This book is as much a detective story about trying to gather information in the pre- glasnost Soviet Union as it is an exhaustive history of every Soviet manned space mission.

Of particular interest. For the amateur space enthusiast, Siddiqi's book represents a highly informative, throughly-researched reference on the Soviet/Russian space program. By focusing on the efforts to land cosmonauts on the moon in competition with Apollo, Siddiqi carefully documents the people and reasons why this effort ultimately did not s:   This book is a very detailed account of the Russian space program.

The diagrams really help to understand the soviet design strategy and how it differed very much from NASA's designs.

It was quite easy to understand that without the Soviet political strive and loss of Russian rocket engineers brought down their attempts to land a man first on Reviews: This book is dedicated to the Soviet Space Dogs, who played a crucial part in the Soviet Space program. These homeless dogs, plucked from the streets of Moscow, were selected because they fitted the program's criteria: weighing no more than 15 pounds, measuring no more than 14 inches in length, robust, photogenic and with a calm temperament/5.

The book is a bit dated because it was written in the '80s, especially the last chapter (which theorizes what's next in the Soviet space program), but it's still an excellent account of the Soviet space program from pre-Sputnik through close to the end of the Salyut program (there's not much talk of Mir)/5(8).
