      The news is again sad and in the continuation of the sad topic:
      Vasily Mikhailovich Peskov, a cult man in journalism and on TV, was gone. The program "In the world of animals", which without exaggeration was watched by the whole country, he led for 15 years. And he wrote a lot - books, articles.

    In Samara, at the age of 86, the chief designer of the Soyuz-2 rocket, Alexander Soldatenkov, died.

    Only briefly ...
    Under the guidance of A.M. Soldatenkov, the P-17 ballistic missile was tested at the Baikonur Cosmodrome on 1959 on February 7. The product flew 5600 km, hitting a precisely defined area at the Kura training ground in Kamchatka. And in the future he was the technical manager of many space launches, primarily manned.
    In 1961, A.M. Soldatenkov was appointed first deputy chief designer, and in 1964, technical director for space and flight tests of launch vehicles, a member of the State Commission for Manned Programs.
    In 1979, he took the position of Deputy General Designer, chief designer of launch vehicles.

    The last of the TITANS are leaving ... And who will fully replace them?

    I remember working at the Central Design Bureau in the early 2000s, so there his name is constantly on the fly, everything is tied to him all the work, projects, everything went through him .. personally, unfortunately I couldn’t communicate, I only saw him several times in the corridors .. How Now, without such people, how to control and develop our space industry? I hope that in our Samara Design Bureau such people have a worthy replacement, and the Unions will remain the most reliable missiles in the world! And his name, as the name of the creator of our cosmos, will remain forever in the memory of our people, as well as the name of Gagarin!

    Yes. fewer and fewer of them remain, True patriots of designers, bow to them all. Although young people are literate and patriotic. BUT they are few to replace. Run unfortunately.
