Caption: Mikhail Yangel (1911-1971), Soviet scientist, with his wife. Yangel was one of the most important designers of liquid-fuelled rockets in the Soviet Union. He began his career mass-producing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) at a rocket propulsion centre in Dniproperovsk, later producing his own designs. Amongst the most important of these were the R-12, R-14 and R-36. The facility also produced a number of space launch vehicles.
