The Rebirth of the Russian Space Program looks at the Russian
space programme in 2007, 50 years after Sputnik. Brian Harvey
covers all the key elements of the current Russian space programme,
from manned to unmanned missions; the various types of unmanned
applications programmes; the military programme; the infrastructure
of production, launch centres and tracking; the commercialization
of the programme and its relationship with western companies; and
the programme in a comparative global context. Strong emphasis is
placed on Russiaa (TM)s future space intentions and on new
programmes and missions in prospect, such as Soyuz in Kourou,
Kliper, Phobos Grunt and the Angara launcher. End matter contains a
list of all missions since January 1991 to December 2006.
