Mission Control Images from the Soviet space program

Post by Nacho84 » Fri Oct 03, 2014 4:48 pm

Hello all,

I hope you're doing well. We need some images from Mission Control from the Soviet space program from the Vostok and Voskhod era. Do you happen to have any good references? If you do, please PM me :)

Cheers,

Thanks for the pictures. We already have one similar to the first one. The second one is cool (and it's very high res!), but the problem is that it's quite new, and it breaks the immersion a little bit.

Feel free to let me know if you find more. These are the ones we've managed to find so far: link.

Yes, we found that one last night as well. Maybe someone can get a rare picture from an old book? Unfortunately most books I have are from the American space program, and it's very easy to get lots of very hi-res pictures from the MCC in Houston online.

Although it is not what you seek ((it is very difficult to find pictures of Soviet mission control), I found photos of Russian cosmonauts training, I have found it interesting:

An interesting BBC report on the first spacewalk. It seems that Leonov's mission had a few "minor glitch" events!

Really nice pics again. I wish Soviets had better cameras, but hey, they had to be able to operate by -40°C in winter and +40°C in summer around Baikonur, so I guess its not bad ! 8)

About Leonov, yeah, he had a slight "suit over-inflation" problem, what saved him was definitively his outstanding physical condition. The Voskhod and its inflatable airlock system, that was crazy, especially for the era !
