Epigraph
"To set foot on the soil of the asteroids, to lift by hand a rock from the Moon, to observe Mars from a distance of several tens of kilometers, to land on its satellite or even on its surface, what can be more fantastic? From the moment of using rocket devices a new great era will begin in astronomy: the epoch of the more intensive study of the firmament."

Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky,
Father of Russian Astronautics: 1896
"This nation has tossed its cap over the wall of space, and we have no choice but to follow it."

John F. Kennedy,
President of United states of America:
November, 1963
Dedication
First words
The little town proclaimed its position in the general order of things by two large billboards that were prominently located on the main road at either end of the business area that consisted of several stores, a few cafés, a post office, and two pubs.
