Zond-2 discovers unknown radiation
28 October 1965, Zond 2 measures high level of radiation in space.
The radiation meter on board the Soviet space station, the Zond-2, which was launched on November 30 of the previous year, has discovered and measured a powerful radiation of unknown origin in planetary space. This new radiation, formed by radio waves, would be of great intensity. The observations on the origin of this radiation are continued.
1961 the origin of cosmic radiation
7 October 1961, Cosmic radiation contains lithium, beryllium and boron.
Cosmic radiation - on the way to our solar system - apparently penetrates first through dense layers of interstellar gas. This is what the Russians have to say about the origin of cosmic radiation, that is not coming from our sun. They based this on observations bone with the sputniks. They have shown that almost half of the particles of cosmic radiation contain lithium, beryllium and boron. The cosmic radiation would thus contain one hundred thousand times more nuclei of these elements than the normal ratio of these elements in nature.
Travel to the moon in prefab super-rocket
27 Januari 1954, Dreaming of a flight to the moon.
Zurich. Three English aerospace experts have submitted a plan for journeys to the moon in a prefabricated super-rocket, which should be assembled in the sky. Their plan, emphasizes that known and unknown difficulties remain as great as never before. The rocket, designed by Alan Dixon, Kenneth Gatland and Anthony Kunesch, from London, will have a crew of three members, the rocket will reach a height of 800 km. and circle the Earth around the equator.
