Books published in the USSR were a staple at home. This was probably because they were so economically priced and some of them were quite interesting.
The production quality was always top class and sometimes the illustrations were mind blowing.
This one is called "Travel To Distant Worlds". It is from 1957.
The Soviet Union's Luna 2 landing on the Moon was still 2 years away (September 1959) and the Apollo 11 mission was 12 years away (July 1969) when this book was published!!!!
It is NOT science-fiction. It is a kind of "extrapolated science" textbook. Enjoy!
