A 1960s scientific journal about the new era of astronomy that opened up after the USSR launched the third space rocket, accelerating the study of outer space.
Translated from the Russian, this book is a relic from the Robert Maxwell glory days of scientific journal publication through his company Pergamon Press. (Before he robbed innocent people of their pensions and met his not untimely downfall!)
Shame on Maxwell. But all power to whoever designed the cover of this obscure scientific study.
Worth posting for the cover illustration alone!
