KONSTANTIN TSIOLKOVSKY. Autograph Partial Manuscript signed: "K E Tsiolkovski", 2p, 4½x7½. In Russian, untranslated, but making reference to a rocket's hypothetical trajectory and speed while in flight. Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935) was a pioneering Russian scientist and rocket designer who laid out the basic principles of modern space flight. Deaf from age 10, Tsiolkovsky was self-educated. His article, "Research into Interplanetary Space by Means of Rocket Power" was published in 1903, the year of the Wright brothers' flight! In over 500 publications on related themes, Tsiolkovsky predicted and described such phenomena as the mathematical possibility of space flight, weightlessness in space, use of pressure suits in the vacuum of space, orbiting space colonies, and the exploration and colonization of our Solar system and then the entire galaxy. Though he launched no rockets himself, he was revered by later generations of Soviet scientists and cosmonauts. Lightly stained on first (nonsignature) side. Slightly creased. Overall fine condition.
