Babiychuk Chronology

1964 October 13 - .
1965 November 25 - .
  • New cosmonauts - . Nation: USSR. Related Persons: Korolev; Voronin; Babiychuk. Program: Voskhod; Soyuz; Lunar L1; . Flight: Voskhod 3. Spacecraft: Voskhod. Kamanin meets the 22 new cosmonaut candidates. Some higher officers have questioned the need for so many cosmonauts in training - 32 are already available. But Kamanin sees plans for 40 to 50 manned spaceflights over the next 3 to 4 years. He expects to see some of these cosmonauts walking on the moon, and others on expeditions to other planets. Later Kamanin has to call Korolev after a dispute breaks out between Voronin and Babiychuk and Frolov. Voskhod 3 will not be cleared for flight because the trials of the long-duration environmental control system will not be undertaken at designer Voronin's institute. Furthermore it is still the position of the military that Voskhod 4 should conduct some military experiments.
