About Moon and About Rocket (1966)


 This is actually the second edition of this 1964 Russian book that I have already blogged about here:

So I will try to post images from this book that you may not have seen before.

I like the abstract quality of these drawings. 

This has a great deal of resemblance to the Apollo Command module configuration.

Finally a reminder that at the time it was still a race to the moon.

  1. Hello.

    The sixth image from the book above is of the Lunik 1 upper stage, as it was displayed in Moscow in 1960 or thereabouts. That is what that shows.

    You have a very appealing blog here, Dude. Keep up the good work.
