The message reads, in part:
“The history of this legendary enterprise boasts a constellation of brilliant discoveries and breakthroughs that have made a unique contribution to Russian science and engineering. In particular, in the early days of the space exploration era, it was Energia specialists who took the lead on building the first artificial earth satellite and the first manned spacecraft, succeeding in other awe-inspiring projects.
It is tremendous to see that the present generation of Energia workers – scientists, designers and technicians – strive to maintain the highest professional bar set by their predecessors, and rely on creativity, boldness and innovation in their high-responsibility jobs. This thorough approach boosts the potential of the rocket and space industry as well as the potential of the defence industry and other knowledge-intensive sectors of the Russian economy.”
