Luna 10 Approaching the Moon

As you may have noticed I remain fascinated by the Soviet space program! This shows the Luna 10 probe headed towards the Moon, it placed the first satellite into Lunar orbit, (the top section of the probe). The phase of the Moon is not historically accurate, but I find a crescent to most moony of Moons!

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.

I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject.
