Roscosmos declassified documents on the Soviet lunar program
Roscosmos published declassified documents on the first Soviet lunar program.
Materials are available on a special section on the website of the state corporation.
It is noted that from the Baikonur Cosmodrome 60 years ago, on September 12, 1959, the Soviet Luna-2 spacecraft was launched, which then became the first object in history to reach the Moon.
Documents such as a memorandum by MK Tikhonravov “On the artificial Earth satellite”, a reference on the flight paths to the moon, a resolution of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Council of Ministers of the USSR on the development of the first spacecraft designated as “Objects E” and others are available on the website.
