Photographer's Note

This church, dedicated to Michael the Archangel, was built recently in stanitsa of Novo-Mikhaylovskaya (or Oktyabrskaya, as its formal Soviet-style name is) in Krilovskiy Rayon of Krasnodarskiy Kray.

In this settlement Yuri Vasilievich Kondratyuk (1897 – 1942), a pioneer of astronautics and spaceflight, lived and worked in 1925 - 1926. He was a theoretician and a visionary who, in the early twentieth century, foresaw ways of reaching the moon. In Novo-Mikhaylovskaya he had written his main book titled "The Conquest of Interplanetary Space". There is a museum of Yuriy Kondratyuk there.
