1957... 1958... 1959... 1966... Just spelling out these numbers sends goosebumps down the spine of every space enthusiast. The whole universe lies out there - virgin, untouched, waiting for the first visitors... And the visitors finally came - in flocks!
Most of the first discoveries during this fantastic period were accomplished by a country, that is not on the globe anymore. Soviet Union started the Space Race with the launch of the planet's first satellite, and, in the following decade, had scored quite an impressive list of 'firsts' in the race, forcing the USA to take space flights seriously
Many of Soviet Union's historical space achivements are recreated in this "educational" addon, which consolidates under one roof three separate addons released in prior years:
- "R-7 Early Missions",
- "Molniya Rocket"
All vessels are heavily reworked with new VesselM library, upgraded for Orbiter 2010 and optimized for DXD9 graphical client. For more authentic visuals, all supplied scenarios are placed in decorations of the new "Spaceports" addon.
Welcome to the history!
