RUSSIAN SPACE FIRSTS ~ Sergei Pavlovich Korolev (1907-1966) is widely regarded as the founder of the Soviet space program. He led the development of the world's first ballistic missile, known today as the R-7, which became a base for a long-lasting family of space boosters, carrying Russian cosmonauts into orbit for decades to come.
