Caption: Friedrich Arturovich Tsander (1887-1933), Latvian scientist and rocket pioneer. Tsander (or Zander) was born at Riga in Latvia and studied at the technical school there. He graduated in 1914 and moved to Moscow. In 1926 he joined the Central Design Bureau of Aviation and in 1930 the Central Institute for Aviation Motor Construction. Zander was a pioneer of many concepts used in modern spaceflight. He was the first to discuss using the atmosphere to slow an approaching spacecraft (re-entry) and the use of gravitational assist to accelerate and slow down. He was the founder of the Group for the Investigation of Rocket Propulsion (in Russian, GIRD) and led the design of the GIRD-10, the first liquid-fuelled rocket motor built in Russia.
