At this time in a neighboring laboratory of the [REDACTED] Institute of the СССР group of scientists of the Laboratory of [REDACTED], led by [REDACTED], in the throes of "giving birth" of a table of thermodynamic and gasdynamic parameters of air required for the missile (for determining the thickness of the protective refractory coating). The group settled down for the calculations in the summer of 1953 and promised to finish by December. Execution time was coming, and promised to give the tables were still far away. "Despite the fact that the calculations were made only two major components of air - nitrogen and oxygen - says [REDACTED], - the task was extremely time-consuming: the equations of dissociation of oxygen and nitrogen should be added to the equation of ionization. Atomic oxide formation nitrogen, to them - the equation counter processes, energy conservation, gas-dynamic laws of the shock wave. The result is a system of 13 equations, which had to be solved by successive approximations. First, the work assigned to two technicians, but they at all desire is clearly not able to be on time - was too cumbersome calculations. [REDACTED] at the [REDACTED] Factory of mechanized bill, which took over the task has a room for the girls keyboards cars. The work went faster, but more rapidly approaching deadline of its completion. Existed at the time the only electronic machine BESM worked for urgent orders, and serious all at her sign it for a long time ahead. ... And then suddenly it was deliverance.
