Caption: Korolyov and wife in Sevastopol. Future Soviet rocket engineer Sergey Korolyov (1907-1966, left) with his first wife Xenia Vincentini (right) in June 1932. They are in front of a war memorial in Sevastopol, in the Crimea region of the Ukraine. Korolyov studied aviation in the 1920s, moving into rocketry in the 1930s. He had known Vincentini since 1924; they married in 1930 and divorced in 1948. Korolyov would later become the chief Soviet rocket designer in the 1950s and 1960s during the space race. The memorial, unveiled in 1909, is to Eduard Totleben (1818-1884), a military engineer and general during the Siege of Sevastopol (1854-1855) in the Crimean War.
