Journey to the Morning Star (1961)

Journey to the Morning Star  is a fictional Russian (juvenile?) novel about a rocket trip to Venus. It has a number of imaginative illustrations that I wanted to share.

Gubarev, Vitaliy.  Illustrated by V. Alekseev. Journey to the Morning Star. Moscow: Detskiy Mir. (95 pp.) 22 cm. 1961.

 I am guessing it starts in a planetarium where they are talking about what it would be like to go to Venus. Beyond that guess it just had some very nice illustration a a space adventure.

  1. They traveled not to Venus, but to the cluster of Coma Berenices in a spaceship that used power of mind. The same principle as in “A Wrinkle in Time”, but one year earlier.
