About the book

Glorious pages in the heroic annals of the conquest of space have been written in the past year, by the flights of the Soviet unmanned spacecraft Luna-21, which delivered Lunakhod-2 to the sur­ face of our natural satellite, and the Prognoz, Kosmos and other series of earth satellites. Working consultations are continuing, on conduct of the important international experiment of docking the Soyuz and Apollo spacecraft in 1975.
The collection, compiled mainly from materials published in the central press, tells of these achievements. The commentaries of well-known Soviet scientists and engineers acquaint the readers with an extensive group of problems.
