Remnants of Soviet Moonshot Bid Revived for Space Launches

MOSCOW, January 10 (Robert MacGregor, RIA Novosti) – At the height of the Cold War in the once-closed Volga River city of Samara, Soviet engineers labored in vain to build a rocket to send men to the moon.

In 1974, with more than a dozen US astronauts having made that landmark voyage and popular fervor for space travel already declining, the program to develop the heavy-lift N1 launcher was shelved after four explosions during testing.
