Russia In Space is a unique attempt to visualize space explorationıs future through the eyes of Russian space engineers and to describe that nationıs plans in space. Based on actual documents, rather than on guesswork, it is the first comprehensive illustrated book dedicated to the Russian vision for the future of manned spaceflight from the dawn of manned spaceflight until today. Lavishly illustrated with images of unparalleled artistic quality and technical accuracy, Russia In Space: - puts the development of the Russian manned spacecraft into political and historical context; - uniquely describes the future of space exploration through the eyes of Russian space engineers and planners; - introduces hitherto unrevealed systems developed for the Russian space program; - describes past events and future plans in the historical context of the fall and rise of the Russian space program.
