Boris Chertok’s Rockets and People

After the recent death of one of the icons of the Soviet Space Program, Boris Chertok(Learn more from previous post), I thought readers may enjoy this.

The NASA History Program now has Boris Chertok’s Rockets and People available online.

“This memoir by a towering figure in Soviet/Russian space history was originally published in Russian and has now been specially translated and edited for publication in the NASA History Series.”

“Much has been written in the West on the history of the Soviet space program, but few Westerners have read direct first-hand accounts of the men and women who were behind the many Russian accomplishments in exploring space. The memoir of academician Boris Chertok, translated from the original Russian, fills that gap.” -NASA History Program
