Elena R.O.
Notable colección de ensayos introductorios sobre la repercusión cultural del programa espacial soviético. Historia general de los "padres" del programa, los precursores y sus héroes, pero sobre todo como narrativa propagandística creada por los poderes del régimen soviético y su impacto en la población soviética de la época (entusiasmo y después desilusión y nostalgia).
Se trata de una mirada general sin entrar al detalle sobre ningún tema ni en análisis pormenorizados. Para mi ver falta precisa
