Known as Star City, the Centre is unique in the history of human space exploration but, until now, has remained essentially a closed location." "With full assistance from those who organise and run the facility, and using unique photographs, first-hand interviews and historical resources, the authors explore how Russian citizens have been selected and trained to fly in space, and how this procedure has changed over the last forty years. They also discuss the evolution of the often overlooked ground support infrastructure. Finally, they examine how the cosmonaut's role has changed from the pioneering days of the Gagarin era, through the demise of the Soviet Union, the cooperation in the multinational commercial and ISS programmes, and into the future and a new era of space exploration."--Jacket." ;
