Read the following text:YURI KONDRATUIK. SPACE CONQUERING.
|Yuri Kondratuik (his real name was Alexander Shargey) was born June 9 (21), 1897 in Poltava, Ukraine. In 1914, the 17-year old apprentice1 in a small town of Poltava begins a fundamental2 work 'on identification of the rocket flight basics' without any previous3 knowledge of world science achievements in this field. Shargey was not able to graduate from the Petrograd Poly-Technical Institute due to enrollment4 to the front during the First World War. Being a pacifist, Shargey actually fought for none. However, he was considered5 an enemy by the new communist power. That is why he had to conceal6 himself, suffer7 from hunger and poverty8 for the next few years, but never parted9 with his notes and went on with research. In order to escape from political persecution10 Shargey changes his name and biography. He is Yuri Kondratuik now and this name will become known to the world. In 1927, Yuri Kondratuik came to Novosibirsk (Russia). Two years before he had sent his work 'Conquering11 of Interplanetary Space' to Moscow. Despite12 the appraisal13 of many scholars14, the publishing of this work was suspended15 and Kondratuik published it on his own costs16. He was arrested. Oddly17 enough, but his only crime was that he built the world's biggest granary18 using no nails (there was a shortage19 of nails at that time). During his imprisonment20, the scientist worked out an unusual project of wind-electric power plant21 without any previous experience in this field. His project was acknowledged22 the best. Yuri Kondratuik never saw his giant wind-electric power plant23in work. Completely disappointed, he joined the Soviet army soon after the beginning of the World War II and died in a battle in 1942. The real name of the 'Moon Route' inventor24 was revealed only in 1970. Even now scholars are amazed25 by his genius. One of the Moon craters, as well as a small planet has been named after Kondratuik. To date, his inventions26, each one being a revelation27, and his destiny torn28 into pieces by history are depicted29 in books and numerous publications.||1- учень 2- фундаментальний 3- попередній 4- зарахування 5- вважався 6- переховуватися 7- страждати 8- бідність 9- розлучатися 10- переслідування 11- підкорення 12- незважаючи 13- оцінка 14- учені 15- призупиняти 16- кошти 17- дивно 18- зерносховище 19- дефіцит 20- тюремне ув'язнення 21- вітрова електростанція 22- визнаний 23- вітрова електростанція 24- винахідник 25- дивуватися 26- винахід 27- відкриття 28- розірваний 29- зображений|
