Russia's city of Kaliningrad, home of the manned-spaceflight mission-control centre, the "Star City" cosmonaut training establishment, and the manufacturing hub of the Khrunichev organisation, has been renamed Korolev, in memory of the space designer Sergei Korolev. He masterminded the development of Russia's intercontinental ballistic missiles, the first Sputnik satellite, the manned Vostok craft and others.
