Anniversary turned Remembrance Day

October 15, 2020

 October 15 marks 65 years since the birth of Evgeny Anatolyevich Mikrin.

General designer/first deputy general director of the Corporation, general designer for manned space systems of Russia, a member of the Scientific and Technical Council of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Evgeni Anatolievich Mikrin. He earned all his positions, titles and awards while working at Energia, where he lived through almost forty difficult and happy years of an exciting and disappointingly short life!

He was always proud of the fact that, while rising through the ranks, he had never skipped a rung on the ladder of his professional career, which took him from an engineer to the general designer in charge of Russias manned spaceflight programs. And he was always young: a young manager, a young academician, he will forever remain in the history of the Corporation as a 64-year old general designer of Energia, whose contribution to the development of our company and our countrys rocket and space technology is both substantial and personal.

And although today, on the day of his anniversary, Evgeni Mikrin is no longer with us, we are not going to depart from tradition. His colleagues, friends and pupils will be remembering the highlights of their joint work and life.
