In the 60’s I was a member of the now defunct Artificial Satellites Section, and used to receive, every fortnight if I remember well, a cyclostyled newsheet with the latest launches, etc.
As a teenager at the time I was enthralled to read of the seemingly huge numbers of launches, many from the mysterious Tyuratam launch site in the old USSR. Others were from the equally mysterious Plesetsk. In those days the USSR was, at least to a schoolboy, as remote and unknown as another planet.
Now however, after a career developing and launching satellites which included extended periods in both Plesetsk and Baikonur (Tyuratam is a Khazakh village and railway station between Baikonur city and the launch complex), it is all much less mysterious!
Does anybody have any remaining copies of these? If so, I’d be very pleased to get a scan of one or two of them.
