I agree that it makes sense for Yenisey-2 to be merged into this article. ThreeBlindMice 20:12, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Upon complete reading of this article I'd say that most of the information contained in Yenisey-2 is already included here under Lunar Photography. Thus, merging the remaining information from Yenisey-2 seems the obvious thing to do. ThreeBlindMice 20:18, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Yes, it makes sense to merge Yenisey-2 into this article. Ricnun 22:20, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
There wasn't much information in the Yenisey-2 article that wasn't already here, so I just grabbed what was missing and completed the merge. Hope no one minds. ThreeBlindMice 01:00, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Merging was the proper thing to do. The Yenisey-2 system was used only on the Luna 3 mission so it was unnecessary to have a separate, common article for other missions to link to. A Stand Up Guy 15:37, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
Apoastron and periastron are incorrect terms, as the sattelite was orbiting Earth, not a star. Apogee and perigee are the correct terms.22.214.171.124 04:49, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes, and both this article and the NASA page have many mistakes. They are ultimate derived from old Western publications rather than research from Russian sources. It needs extensive revision. DonPMitchell (talk) 04:54, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
The launch time is wrong (for many space probes!). Here's what happens. The RAE table lists the launch time of Luna-3 as "Oct 4.1". If you convert the one-digit approximage time ".1 days" to four digits of accuracy, you get 02:24 UT. Wrong. The actual launch date for Luna-3 was 00:43:39.7 UT (given by Baikonur telemetry specialist and historian, Vladimir Poroshkov). I'll edit in, but it's likely to get undone someday, because the NASA website is mistaken. DonPMitchell (talk) 07:28, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
I think this page is unfairly biased towards the Russian space exploits! AN objective page would include several mentionings of the achievements of FREEDOM. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:05, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
