Photos hidden lunar programs from the USSR

These photographs are some of the remaining evidence to date that the Soviet Union also tried to put a man on the moon — of course, after it failed, or, more precisely, did not have time to do a program there forgotten.

In general, fortunately, is not that enough is transient and disappears without any trace. The pictures that we can create, captured one of the laboratories of the Metropolitan Institute of Aviation, Aerospace and equipment, including apparatus for planting gallaktichesky moon module.

The history of "Moon race" well known to many contemporaries: before the South American president John F. Kennedy initiated the start-up programs from "Apollo" Russian Alliance noticeably ahead of the U.S. in the investigation of the moon. Namely, in 1959 on the lunar surface was taken to an automatic interplanetary station "Moon-2 "and in 1966 released its orbit Russian satellite.

As Americans, Russian scientists have developed a multi-step approach to the target. Do they also have two separate modules to stay in orbit for landing.

While the crew of "Apollo 11" includes 3 members, the burden of the Russian lunar applets had to sit down on the shoulders of the 1st astronaut — so Makar, the weight of the equipment to be significantly reduced. In addition, there were other differences that make Russian the apparatus easier. At first, this can be attributed to the relative simplicity of the design, the implementation of the 1st and the same motor for the landing and take-off, the lack of a direct connection between the orbital and lunar module. This meant that the cosmonaut would have to go out into space, so move to the lander before planting and, later, to pick up back in the orbiter after returning from the moon. After that, the moon module disconnected, and gallaktichesky machine cast off to Earth without him.

The main prerequisite that prevented Russian side to land a man on the moon, have trouble with boosters. Despite the fact that two of the first test launch was successful, during the third rocket crashed. In the fourth test conducted in 1971, the trial gallaktichesky the unit returned to Earth on the wrong line of traffic, hitting the air space in Australia, so that could appear an international scandal: Russian diplomats Tipo had to convince Australians that the incident at their facility — it's a test gallaktichesky module "Cosmos-434", but not a nuclear warhead.

After several failures programm has become very expensive, but after the Americans presented to the world documentary evidence of success of the mission, "Apollo 11", it generally lost meaning. As a result, gallakticheskoe equipment has become something like museum exhibits.
