Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935) is regarded in the Soviet Union as the 'father of rocketry' and has been universally recognized for his pioneering work in astronautics-cosmonautics. Tsiolkovsky solved, theoretically, the problem of escape from Earth's gravity, designed multistage rockets, and foresaw interplanetary flights.
