Vasily Mishin

Vasily Pavlovich Mishin (January 18, 1917October 10 2001) was a Soviet engineer and a prominent rocketry pioneer.

Mishin was a Soviet rocket scientist and one of the first Soviet specialists to see Nazi Germany’s V-2 facilities at the end of World War II. He worked with Sergey Korolyov as his deputy in the development of the first Soviet ICBM and in the Sputnik and Vostok programs.

Mishin became head of Korolyov’s OKB-1 design bureau after Korolyov's death in 1966. He tried unsuccessfully, through lack of funding, to land a man on the Moon using the N1 rocket. He was replaced in this position by Valentin Glushko in 1974.

He continued his educational and research works as the head of rocket department of Moscow Aviation Institute.

Vasily Mishin was awarded the title Hero of Socialist Labor for his work with the Soviet space program.
