    After several unmanned test flights in and early the USSR launched the world's first manned spacecraft, Vostok, on Apr. 12, The pilot was a year-old Russian named Yuri Gagarin. The basic spacecraft consisted of a three-ton sphere and a two-ton service module. Since then, Russian spacecraft have been making significant contributions in the mankind's understanding of the Solar System and the broader Universe. The Earth-orbiting satellites studied cosmic radiation, distant objects and physical phenomena in deep space. They also helped to advance material science and space biology.

      These primary sources come in a variety of forms, including written documents, photographs, and videos. Several DocsTeach activities teach students about the pioneering Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. These early manned space programs set the foundation for the modern space . Perhaps the clearest indicator of the bloated nature of the Soviet space program was its N1 rocket, the design that was intended to bring a manned mission to the moon. Meant to compete with.

    Early Soviet Manned Space flight Historical Background A central element in the Soviet Union’s explora-tion and exploitation of space has been its reliance on Salyut-class orbital stations occupied by cos-monauts. Seven of these stations have been offi-cially announced by the U.S.S.R. as of Decem-ber These facilities have begun to.   The author covers a number of events and activities leading up to the mission and the U.S. collection effort — the early lunar program, Soviet launch vehicles, collection and prediction through , US. deep-space collection, Soviet planetary shots in , and Soviet space launches in and — and then the Luna 9 mission itself.

This book is as much a detective story about trying to gather information in the pre- glasnost Soviet Union as it is an exhaustive history of every Soviet manned space mission.

Of particular interest is the coverage of the Soviets' unsuccessful manned lunar program of the s/5(8). This is a list of the human spaceflight missions conducted by the Soviet space missions belong to the Vostok, Voskhod, and Soyuz space programs.

The first patch from the Soviet Space Program was wore by Valentina Tereshkova, then the same patch for the Voskhod 2, Soyuz 4/5 and So Soyuz 3 had an official insignia that wasn't wore during the flight.

The Space program of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (Russian: Космическая программа СССР, romanized: Kosmicheskaya programma SSSR), commonly known as the Soviet space program, was the national space program of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), active from the s until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in The first manned space flight in history was accomplished on Apwhen the Soviet spaceship Vostok (East) orbited the earth and made a safe landing.

The first man in space was 27 year old Yuri Alexeyevich Gagarin, a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics/5(3). Disaster in Soviet Space. Disaster struck the Soviet program and gave them their first big setback.

It happened in when cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov was killed when the parachute that was supposed to settle his Soyuz 1 capsule gently on the ground failed to open. It was the first in-flight death of a man in space in history and a great embarrassment to the program.

Adapted from "Soviet Manned Space Programs: " - By Marcia S. Smith, Formerly with the, Science Policy Research Division of the Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service - First published by NASA in as ""Challenge to Apollo"", this volume, together with a second volume entitled ""Sputnik and the Soviet Space Challenge"", presents a comprehensive history of the Soviet-manned space programmes covering a period of 30 years, from the end of World War II, when the Soviets captured German rocket technology, to the collapse of their moon programme in the s: Top 10 Soviet and Russian Space Missions.

Russia, formerly the Soviet Union, has long been at the forefront of the space frontier, beginning 50 years ago with the historic Oct. 4, They were all made individually, by hand, out of wood, metal & resin and then hand painted by Russian space engineers.

Soyuz-T Manned Spacecraft Model Hand made, all metal Model of the Russian Soyuz-T manned spacecraft built by the Energia Company. As the recent anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing has shown, the Soviet side of the space race remains very much unknown to those of us in the West even now.

Part of why it is the sheer amount of secrecy that surrounded it in its heyday. Helping to pierce the veil is Philip Clark's book /5(2).

It tells the fascinating story of how Europe aimed for an independent manned spaceflight capability which was to complement US and Soviet/Russian space activities.

InFrance decided to expand its plans for automated satellites for materials processing to include the development of a small 10 ton spaceplane to be. But as recently as last year, Phillip Clarke, a British authority on Soviet space technology, wrote in his book ''The Soviet Manned Space Program,'' that ''direct confirmation'' of a manned.

Human spaceflight capability was first developed during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union (USSR), which developed the first intercontinental ballistic missile rockets to deliver nuclear rockets were large enough to be adapted to carry the first artificial satellites into low Earth the first satellites were launched in andthe US.

It was derived from the Almaz reconnaissance platform designed in the s by Soviet aerospace engineer Vladimir Chelomey and adapted for use with the Soyuz manned spacecraft originally developed by his rival Sergey Korolyov for the Soviet Moon-landing program.
