Abstract

Any book on Soviet and Russian lunar exploration has to face problems of information sources and their reliability. Even such apparently mundane and non-controversial matters as the paths taken by Soviet spacecraft as they circled the moon and the precise coordinates as to where they landed can be problematic, with official sources quoting different and even contradictory details - and then revising them! During the peak of the moon race, the official organs of Soviet government issued an economy of information on certain spacecraft and even disinformation on others. There is no official, comprehensive authorized history of the Soviet moon programme, which makes the assembly of the story all the more challenging, interesting and necessary. I have tried to put together the most accurate sources that best fit the known facts, ‘the best version of the truth available’ - but over time these will be superseded as new information sources become available. The story of the Soviet/ Russian moon programme is still, as the saying goes now, a ‘site under construction’.
