Rynin, Nikolai Alexsevitch (1887–1942)

Nikolai Rynin

Nikolai Rynin was a Russian author whose Mezhplanetnye Soobschniya (Interplanetary Communications), a nine-volume encyclopedia of space travel, was published from 1928 to 1932. The first seven volumes appeared before a single book on interplanetary flight had been printed in the United States or Britain. Rynin also regularly sent out reports on Russian activities in rocketry to the West.
