I join the chorus of lamentations. I gave a copy of his book to Aleksey Leonov at
Baykonur in 1995, and the following morning he told me, "Now I know where 
I can go for the facts I can no longer remember."

  Dennis Newkirk passed away on April 12, 2012. He was the author (among many publications) of the wonderful Almanac of Soviet Manned Space Flight (1990).

  He was a really great guy. Generous with his time and resources. I met him around '92 or so, and we got to be good friends soon after, sharing with each other everything we collected on the Soviet space program. He had a keen eye for Soviet space history and inspired many (including myself) with his generosity and good humor. He will be missed.
