Abstract: Against the background of the technologies of the XXI century, the human flight to the Moon in the middle of the last century often seems improbable to our contemporaries and raises many questions. The main ones – about lunar fakes, about the technical equipment of flights, about the condition of astronauts – are answered in this book. The author is driven not by the desire to convince us that the Apollo program is a fait accompli, but by a great desire to share carefully verified new facts, unknown images and interesting details about human flights to the Moon. The variety and fascination of the information in the book will not leave any reader indifferent. Was there a toilet on the spaceship? How are wet wipes and cosmic radiation related? How many meters can you jump on the moon? Why don't people go to the moon these days? What is included in the new Artemis program and why is it important for the US presidential election? What technologies and knowledge of half a century ago will help a person return to the moon?

The training took place in Zhukovsky. The author of the book tells how Gagarin helped him prepare a medical examination of test pilots. Then, in 1962, the first cosmonaut of the planet and the author met in very unusual conditions: they hovered in short-term weightlessness in the cabin of the TU-104, flying at high altitude on a parabolic trajectory. In these flights, the equipment for the space flight of Andriyan Nikolaev was tested. Kitaev-Smyk also recalls how an emergency situation occurred in one of these flights and how people behaved differently in deadly danger.

Abstract: As a child, Michael Massimino, nicknamed Massa, dreamed of becoming Spider-Man, but in July 1969, he and the whole world saw Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the Moon, and forever fell ill with the dream of flying to the stars. There were seemingly insurmountable obstacles along the way: Michael suffered from a fear of heights, had poor eyesight, and failed important exams. However, perseverance and loyalty to the dream did their job: he not only managed to become a unique specialist in the field of practical cosmonautics, developing software for a robotic manipulator, but also flew into orbit twice, taking part in missions to repair the Hubble telescope. Moreover, today Michael Massimino is one of those who personify modern cosmonautics: he was the first to come up with the idea of writing to Twitter from space and plays himself in the popular TV series "The Big Bang Theory". His book is a dramatic and motivating story about how a dream turns into reality, about friendship and mutual assistance, about advanced science and sophisticated technologies. And this book tells about why humanity should fly to the stars. Astronauts are not born, they become astronauts.

Abstract: The book of the famous TV presenter Igor Prokopenko is a fascinating story about space research-from early developments to the latest prototypes. This story is full of secrets – both purely "official" - many facts will be made public for the first time in this book, and unexplained from a scientific point of view: numerous evidence of unidentified flying objects and contacts with alien civilizations. How did the fascist scientist von Braun become the father of American cosmonautics? What animals, other than Squirrels and Arrows, were the space pioneers? Why was Gagarin's double needed? What made Leonov go into outer space contrary to the instructions? What kind of life form did scientists see on the planet Gliese with the help of a super telescope? Who lives in the bowels of the moon?
The earth on which we live, on which we walk every day and which we see every day, is also a part of the Cosmos, but we forget about it all the time. Igor Prokopenko's book reminds us of this!

Abstract: The book covers a wide range of materials related to the sources of cosmic radiation that affect astronauts during interplanetary and orbital space flights, the values of dose loads, the reactions of individual systems and the whole organism of animals and humans, as well as changes in its stability under the complex nature of radiation exposure in outer space. The results of a 14-year experiment on a large batch of dogs with modeling of the dose loads and the nature of the dose distribution over time, which will affect astronauts during the flight to Mars, are presented. Models of the formation of radiation damage in the hematopoietic system and at the level of the body during prolonged exposures with different dose rates, as well as a model of the radiation mortality rate of mammals, describing accelerated aging and changes in age-related mortality rates depending on the dose and dose rate of radiation exposure, are considered. The book presents algorithms and results of calculations of radiation risk in the course of interplanetary and orbital flights, throughout the life of astronauts, as well as data on the possible reduction of the upcoming life expectancy. New approaches to the regulation of radiation exposure are proposed and new lower permissible doses for astronauts are justified both during flights and during their entire professional activity.

The collection documents the path taken by Russian rocket science and cosmonautics, from the first volleys of the Katyusha rocket to the prospects of flights to other planets. Opening the book, you are immersed in the atmosphere of loud victories and annoying defeats, heavy space everyday life, the struggle of ideas and opinions – all that is inseparable from the history of Russian cosmonautics. The documents will tell you what a high price the victory in the Great Patriotic War, which became the prologue of space victories, was paid, how the V-2 rocket was literally assembled from the wreckage, the first Soviet ballistic missiles were tested, the first artificial satellite of the Earth was created. Readers will learn why cosmonaut G. S. Titov almost died during one of the training sessions, what special words Chief designer S. P. Korolev said to cosmonaut A. A.

Abstract: More than half a century has passed since the death of Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Mikhailovich Komarov, the test pilot of the new experimental Soyuz-1 spacecraft. However, there are still many rumors and speculations surrounding the disaster. This book, created on the basis of archival documents, gives an idea of the situation that developed in the Soviet space program in the mid-60s of the XX century, and describes in detail all the circumstances of the tragic flight for the commander of the first Soyuz.
