WASHINGTON, March 30, (RIA Novosti, Alexander Bratersky) - The National
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is to present an
English-language version of Academician Boris Chertok's book "Rockets and
People" in Moscow March 30. Boris Chertok, who cooperated closely with
Sergei Korolev, pioneered the Soviet space program, developing
rocket-guidance systems and specializing in astro-navigation.
This book was edited by Professor Asif Siddiqi, and is the first of a several-volume set.
Let's all stop for a moment and reflect upon how amazing it is that NASA--a US government agency, the last time I checked--is actually helping to publish Russian space history in the English language.
