113th anniversary of S.P. Korolev

January 12, 2019

Today, January 12, marks the 113th anniversary of an outstanding designer, a pioneer in our countrys rocket technology and the father of space flight, the Chief Designer of OKB-1, academician Sergei Pavlovich Korolev.

The team of OKB-1 led by Sergei Pavlovich Korolev developed the world's first intercontinental ballistic missile R-7, which became the basis for a family of multistage space launch vehicles, and built the first artificial satellites of Earth and robotic probes sent to the Moon, Venus and Mars. On April 12, 1961, the manned spacecraft Vostok built at our company accomplished the worlds first manned mission into space.

Delegations of the management and representatives of State Corporation Roscosmos, RSC Energia and members of S.P. Korolevs family laid flowers at the Kremlin wall where the Chief Designer is buried.
