Caption: Tsiolkovsky house and museum. Bedroom in the house, preserved as a museum, of the Russian aviation and aerospace pioneer Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935). Tsiolkovsky laid many of the foundations of modern aerodynamics. He is best known for his visionary work and predictions concerning space travel, and he is considered one of the founding figures of rocketry and astronautics. He spent much of his time as a near-recluse in this log house, in Kaluga, Russia, living here for 29 years. It was turned into a museum in 1936, the year after his death, with restoration taking place in 1968. Photographed in 1997.
