This book tells the story of the Soviet and Russian lunar programme, from its origins to the present-day federal Russian space programme. It concludes that political mismanagement rather than technology prevented the Soviet Union from landing cosmonauts on the moon.
This book tells the story of the Soviet and Russian lunar programme, from its origins to the present-day federal Russian space programme. It is the first book dedicated to Soviet/Russian lunar exploration and shows how the USSR/Russia developed systems for reaching the moon and returning lunar spaceships to Earth. Brian Harvey describes the techniques devised by the USSR. He asks whether these systems would have worked and examines how well they were tested. He concludes that political mismanagement rather than technology prevented the Soviet Union from landing cosmonauts on the moon. The book is well timed for the return to the moon by the United States and the first missions there by China and India.
Origins of the Soviet lunar programme.- The first moon probes.- Planning the lunar landing.- The soft- landers and orbiters.- The first cosmonauts to the moon.- Around the moon.- Samplers, rovers and orbiters.- Return to the moon.- List of all Soviet moon probes (and related missions).- Bibliographical note and bibliography.
