Let's agree that Freedom 7 was manned by Alan B. Shepard, not ...phard, ok?

Hello Everyone..


In 2009, I had a two-part article published on what the US intelligence
community knew (via some declassified materials) about the Vostok program.


Here are the bibliographic citations to the two-part serial.


Sleuthing the Vostok:  The Inside Story of the US Intelligence Community's
Effort to Understand Korolev's First Manned Program.  Part 1.  Space Chronicle
62 (JBIS Supplement 1):2-20, 2009.


Part 2.  Space Chronicle 62 (JBIS Supplement 2): 34-47, 2009.



One of the subject themes covered in my article (a side bar) is the claim (that
was briefly broached on Russian TV) that the CIA attempted to sabotage in some
manner the launching of Gagarin's mission-perhaps with the aim to have it occur
after Shephard's Mercury hop in early May.


I am looking forward to seeing whether this topic is going to be covered in the
50th Anniversary celebrations coverage of the historical event.
