Abstract:

In his book Rockets and Interplanetary Flights, engineer B. V. Lyapunov expounds in easily accessible terms the achievements of modern science and technology in the conquest of space, and examines the outlook on future space flights. The book gives a detailed account of Soviet artificial earth satellites, space rockets and space ships, on the flights to the moon and the Venus. A separate chapter is devoted to the unparallelled flights, first in the world, by Soviet astronauts Major Yu. A. Gagarin and Major G. S. Titov. Considerable space is also devoted to the works of Soviet scientists, and to the work of the founder of astronautics, K. E. Tsiolkovskiy. The book is compiled from materials published in the domestic and foreign press. Publishers note
