Valentin Glushko, Soviet scientist Featured 3 Mar 2005 Print

Valentin Glushko, Soviet scientist

Valentin Glushko (1908-1989), Soviet rocket scientist. Glushko was one of the most important scientists in the development of the Soviet space programme. His early years after graduation were spent experimenting on liquid-fuelled rocket engines, largely without success. In 1938 he was arrested in one of Stalin's purges but, as with so many scientists, allowed to continue his work in prison. He was released before the end of the Second World War and, with the Cold War beginning, enjoyed the vast resources given to rocket research. The engines he designed powered all of the early Soviet space missions, including the first manned orbit of the Earth, in Vostok 1

Aleksei Isayev, Soviet engineer

Aleksei Isayev (1908-1971), Soviet engineer and rocket scientist. Isayev began his career in aviation. He used engineering qualifications to design the undercarriages for bombers. During the Second World War he was tasked with developing a rocket-powered fighter plane, the BI. With no real Russian experience of working with rockets, the design had to start from scratch. But by the end of the war Isayev was sufficiently knowledgeable to be sent to acquire German rocket technology. After the war he developed engines for surface-to- air and submarine-based missiles
