The editorial board of the web site begins the publication of a series of archive materials of the Experimental Design Bureau (OKB-1) headed by S.P. Korolev (at present called S.P. Korolev RSC Energia), related to the exploration of the Moon and other planets of the Solar System. Thus, the editorial board continues to discuss with the visitors to the web site the problems of lunar exploration, which was started with the publication.
After the successful launch on December 23, 2014, of the heavy launch vehicle Angara-А5 the task of lunar exploration transitions from theory to practice.
We hope that the problem of exploration of the Moon and other planets of the Solar System, which S.P. Korolev did not live long enough to solve, will be solved by the current generation of Russian scientists and engineers, and let them be assisted in this undertaking by the materials developed under the leadership of S.P. Korolev.
Note: N-1 - the Soviet super-heavy launch vehicle was to put 75 tons of payloads into a low-Earth orbit and 16 tons into lunar orbit.
