Future Lunar Missions: Review of Soviet and Soviet-bloc Literature
Defense Technical Information Center, 1964 - Space flight to the moon - 246 pages
This report collects materials illustrating informed Soviet discussion of manned lunar flight in the period immediately preceding Khrushchev's 26 Oct 1963 disavowal of a crash man-on-themoon program. Its purpose is to establish the possible patterns of thought of Soviet scientists and authoritative news commentators by the use of selected statements. Since no collection in this field can be thoroughly exhaustive, the criterion for selection of the individuals to be cited and the citations was their representative nature. With certain exceptions forced by time limitations, bio-bibliographic annotations are provided. In order to communicate most fully the impact of the original, the statements are translated rather than paraphrased. In most cases the materials quoted are from the 1961 to 1963 period, although earlier statements are occasionally reproduced when necessary to establish the pattern. (Author).
