Following on from Cold War Space Sleuths edited by Dominic Phelan, we have, through Astro Info Service, compiled a special edition of the popular ZENIT magazine now available through our website.

ZENIT ran from 1985 - 1992 and was edited by Neville Kidger with contributions from Rex Hall, Mike Cassutt, Andy Salmon, Phil Clark, Phil Mills and many others.

In Space Sleuths, we mentioned the popularity of the magazine and in this edition, we have expanded the history of how the publication was produced. Contributors have provided their own reflections on the magazine and how sleuthing the Russian and Chinese programmes has changed over the years.
