During the Cold War, rocket technology was among the most closely guarded secrets of the Soviet Union. But with the dissolution of the communist superpower, the two former adversaries have joined forces in many areas. One of the most profitable partnerships has taken place in space.
Cosmodrome is the story of Russia's "Crown Jewels"--the finest rocket engines in the world, built under conditions of absolute secrecy to land a man on the moon. It tells how, at the height of Cold War rivalry, the engineers of the Soviet Union's elite Design Bureaux developed what today have become the most admired rocket engines money can buy--and how in the new climate, driven by commerce not conflict, those engines have found their way into American rockets.
