MARY Schneiderís article on July 30, titled Fly me to the moon (But Then Again), made me laugh. I really loved it.
Trust the Russians. I had been to and trained in Star City (the area in Moscow Oblast, Russia, which has been home to the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center since the 60s) well before our Malaysian astronaut went there.
The Russians have their own specialities and weakness but their engineering is way ahead that of others and they started their endeavours to explore the moon before the Americans. Thanks and keep on writing, Mary. We can read your articles online, wherever we are.
