Expert author who has worked on the Apollo and Shuttle space programmes.

200 colour, 50 mono illustrations

The Soyus Manual tells the story of Soyuz from its origin as successor to the Vostok-era capsules which carried early cosmonauts into space, to the Zond spacecraft which aimed to send humans to the Moon and back, and to the unmanned Progress cargo-tanker vehicles which serviced space stations with goods and supplies. Soyuz has proven to be the most versatile spacecraft ever built, serving many roles across five decades.

A product of the Cold War and the space race that saw Russia and the United States struggling to put the first men on the Moon, the Soyuz spacecraft was designed in the early 1960s and has been carrying cosmonauts and astronauts into orbit for almost 50 years. In that time it has served to deliver people to several Soviet-era space stations and to the International Space Station (ISS) since 2000, when it carried the Expedition 1 crew to the orbiting facility.

Throughout the assembly phase of the ISS, Soyuz stood in as the sole means of humans reaching space on occasions when the Shuttle was grounded. This occurred after the loss of Columbia in 2004, and since 2011 when the Shuttle was retired. Soyuz is likely to remain the sole means for anyone from Earth being able to access space for several years.

The story of Soyuz embraces the race for the Moon, told here as an integral part of how the spacecraft was adapted for new goals and changing requirements. That ultimate achievement was never realised, but the story of how the programme suffered from political meddling is key to understanding the history of the spacecraft itself. Added to this are detailed descriptions of how Soyuz works and how it is operated, with upgrades and improvements keeping pace with the latest technology.
