Dear All,


The impact of the historic revelation long since suspected and understood by myself are not better displayed than by the outstanding write up  by Mr. Mark Wade, "New Insights from the Mishin Diaries", blog post 2015-03-11, http://pausanias.blogspot.ru/2015/03/new-insights-from-mishin-diaries.html 


It is the best in-depth understanding of the complicatedness of the manned lunar program mission requirements brought on by the failed efforts to get Proton and N1-L3 ready in time for the State requirements verses what the mission configurations would have been once reliably became an operational routine if it ever does. 


That heritage of the original late Acad. S. P. Korolev’s requirements for the lunar mission that Acad. V. P. Mishin attempted to carry out was written up in the Spaceflight article I published from an interview with the late Acad. Guy I. Severine at the Paris Air Show “Sergey P. Korolev's Lunar Mission Profile,” Note: This is Part 3 of The Mishin Mission by Charles P. Vick. For Part 1 see JBIS, 47, 9, September 1994, p.357 and for Part 2 see Spaceflight, January 1996, p.28. SPACEFLIGHT, Vol. 38. 1996. Ref. 1. B. Hendrickx, "Soviet Lunar Dream that Faded",   Spacejlight, 37, No. 4, April 1995. pp.135-137.


Many thanks to all that made this life time effort fruitful for this depth of understanding of that history that was an integral part of our lives in that era.

Dr. Dmitry Payson was a lead participant in the effort to collect all of the Vasily Mishin diaries and get them transcribed, translated where only cryptic entries were made, and published in a three volume series: http://www.mishindiaries.com.  He was then invited to present a paper on the project and the diaries which is now available in Acta Astronautica Volume 123, June–July 2016, Pages 192–199.  Folks can access a copy of the paper at  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0094576515302551 as explained in the note below.  So congratulations to Dima and the team for all of their efforts to bring this project to completion.  It will serve as a valuable historical reference for researchers for many years to come.
