Group Records

Records of satellites tracked, analysis and Group history are part of the Collection left by the late Geoff Perry.

The archive consists of the verbatim logs created at the Kettering Grammar School satellite tracking station plus summary logs that include observations from other stations. There are analyses of those observations and of orbital information that all go into understanding the history and development of the Soviet/Russian space programme.
